The Housing Action Team is agroup of community members who have come together with a shared vision of equity, well-being, and grassroots leadership. The Housing Action Team’s mission is to engage authentically with our neighborhoods, collectively refining and defining the places we call home. Through people-powered planning solutions, we are fighting to have better neighborhoods, with the same neighbor and everyone has access to affordable and safe housing.
This member space, is building a dedicated community that drives PODER’s PUEBLOTE mission forward. Through our monthly multilingual meetings, community members and allies gather to participate in skill-building activities and collective decision-making processes. United, this leaderful group of everyday people is directing housing justice initiatives and campaigns, holding developers and city agencies accountable for equitable development.
- We are committed to creating more affordable housing options for low-income residents, regardless of their documentation status. We believe that all low-income families in District 11 should have equal access to quality, safe, and healthy rental and ownership housing.
- We aim to expand tenant protections for renters in District 11. By advocating for stronger safeguards, we empower individuals and families to maintain stable housing and prevent displacement, fostering a sense of community continuity.
- We champion for community stewardship over land, promoting the creation of more affordable housing, locally owned businesses, and community-controlled institutions. By acquiring land for community needs, we pave the way for a more inclusive and sustainable future.
Join us in our efforts to build a more equitable community. Together, we can ensure that affordable family housing is integrated with essential amenities such as parks, schools, public transportation, grocery stores, child care facilities, recreational centers, and community services.
