We aim to help build an anti-racist, feminist, multiracial, anti-oppressive tenant movement. This means we do not tolerate racism, homophobia, ableism, transphobia, islamophobia, classism, cis-sexism, or sexism. We also hope to continue working to make this virtual event, and our office, as accessible as possible to everyone who is interested in being part of the fight for housing justice.

We look forward to having you join the team!
