Shifting the Conversation

Anti-Eviction Mapping Project is crowdsourcing stories of rent strikes, what tenants are facing during this time, and helping connect rent strikers to resources. View the map and submit your story.

This communiqué from Los Angeles urges us to take a moment to connect amidst this extraordinary crisis that surrounds us all. Learn more about the critical work of local movement teachers, organizing fiercely on the frontlines.


With partners in India, Brazil, South Africa, Spain, and the U.S., the Network aims to bring together organizations, individuals, and ideas around creating housing access and housing justice through legal frameworks, cooperative models of land and housing, and community organizing. Sign up to join the Network if you would like to receive housing justice reports and updates about community action and events.


The Housing Justice in #UnequalCities Network is funded by the National Science Foundation (BCS 1758774) and brings together research communities whose work analyzes key geographies of housing precarity (evictions, homelessness, displacement, segregation, informal settlements) and examines established and emergent practices of housing justice (eviction blockades, community land trusts, housing cooperatives and commons, tenant organizing, homeless unions, social rent, land value tax). In doing so, it consolidates housing justice as a field of inquiry and sets the stage for future research in geography and urban studies. Learn more.
