- 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.
