WHO WE ARE
Housing Justice for All is a statewide movement of tenants and homeless New Yorkers united in our fight for housing as a human right.
How it started…
We were founded in 2017 in Albany, New York at a meeting of grassroots community groups committed to take on the power that the real estate industry wields in our State.
In 2019, we shocked the political establishment and won the strongest tenant protections in New York in generations. We were just getting started.
In 2020, we’ve organized thousands of people to resist eviction and fight for a just recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Tax the Rich, #CancelRent, & End Homelessness
In 2021, we are fighting for a recovery that centers directly impacted front line communities.
Our campaign is led by the people who are fighting to afford housing in New York every single day.
