Statement of Community Autonomy
Housing Justice League is a community-led organization made up of long-time residents, community stakeholders, homeowners and renters. We believe that housing is a human right regardless of race, national or ethnic origin, economic background, religion, disability, sexual orientation, gender, or immigration status.
Our mission supports communities facing mass displacement enabled by oppressive and unjust housing policies that intentionally exploit and segregate communities by race and class. Housing Justice League works with communities to collectively understand and act in our shared interests. We understand that liberation will only come about through collective organizing within communities most affected by injustice and oppression that empowers them politically and builds autonomy.
For this reason, Housing Justice League works for community power, and does not take sides with or follow the leadership of developers or government entities at the city, state, or national level.
