We support this ordinance AND call on the city to prioritize not just tenant protections but tenant power
The preservation of Huntington Place hinged on the often invisibilized efforts of community organizers
Policy recommendations focus on housing access & stability, and community ownership & investment
In our latest interview, we sat down with the new community organizer at the West Side Community Organization!
