RE: Docket No. FR-6250-P-01; Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing
DATE: Apr 24, 2023
FROM: Alliance for Housing Justice
The Alliance for Housing Justice (AHJ) is a coalition of housing justice organizations, formed to address the nation’s affordable housing and displacement crisis, advance tenant rights, and shift housing from a commodity to a human right. We all need a place to call home; affordable, safe housing is a fundamental human need. But our nation’s history of racist and exclusionary policies means that far too many of us have been kept out of quality housing — which is what led to the passage of the Fair Housing Act and the obligation to Affirmatively Further Fair Housing (AFFH).
