About

WHO WE ARE

 

Launched in the spring of 2017, Housing NOW! California is a broad and diverse movement building power to make housing affordable and to combat the displacement crisis that is disproportionately impacting working class communities of color. Our coalition has grown to over 60 organizations and has mobilized 1000 grassroots leaders from across the state. Led by tenants, Housing Now! includes allied landlords, realtors, and dozens of community, faith and labor organizations. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to live in a safe, healthy, affordable home.

 

OUR VALUES

 

We believe that housing is for people, not for profit

We should not prioritize corporate landlord’s profit over the rights of our families to keep a roof over their head

We believe that 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 believe that housing policy must 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, and other vulnerable communities
