Our Mission

Housing is a human right. The Housing Working Group takes action to work towards actualizing that human right for everyone in Chicago.

What We Do

We are active coalition partners in the Lift the Ban coalition and got the referendum on the ballot in two precincts in Hyde Park. We offer trainings and work with other housing organizations across the city to support housing justice efforts.

Our Leadership Structure

We have a steering committee including two co-chairs.

Getting Involved

The Housing WG is always growing and because housing is such an intimate component of our lives, this WG has the capacity to develop leaders in dynamic ways. Tenant organizing, leading teach-ins, phonebanking/canvassing, everything’s on the table.
