Housing Now! is a broad and diverse movement of people combatting the affordable housing crisis Wall Street has brought to California – tenants and homeowners alike. Led by tenants, our coalition includes landlords, realtors, and dozens of community, faith and labor organizations.

Endorsing organizations include: Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE), ACT-LA, Alameda Renters Coalition, California Rural Legal Assistance Foundation (CRLAF), Causa Justa Just Cause, CCISCO, CHIRLA, Community Legal Services of East Palo Alto, Council of Community Housing Organizations, Courage Campaign, East Bay Housing Organization, Employee Rights Center (San Diego), Gamaliel CA, Housing Long Beach, Housing California, Housing Rights Committee San Francisco, Inner City Law Center (LA), LA CAN, LA Forward, LA Human Right to Housing Collective, LA VOICE (PICO),  Leadership Counsel for Justice and Accountability (Central Valley), MEDA (Mission Economic Development Agency), North Bay Organizing Project, PICO California,Public Advocates, Public Interest Law Project, San Francisco Tenants Union, SEIU Locals 2015, 1021, 221 and USWW, Strategic Actions for a Just Economy (SAJE), Sacramento Housing Alliance, Tenants Together, UFCW Local 135, UTLA (United Teachers Los Angeles), Urban Habitat and Western Center on Law & Poverty.

OUR VALUES:

  • Housing is for people, not for profit.
  • Solutions must be led by those most affected: low-income and communities of color that have been victims of housing instability due to racist housing policy.
  • We must make housing policy to prioritize those most in need first: domestic violence victims, formerly incarcerated people, veterans, those currently or at risk of homelessness, Section 8 tenants, people with mental health issues, people with substance abuse issues, etc.
