The Housing Justice League is a project of the non-profit community organization ACCE (Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment), a grassroots, member-led, statewide community organization working with thousands of members across California using digital organizing to create change. As a multi-issue organization, ACCE and its members are dedicated to the struggle for economic, racial and social justice both taking action online and offline.
The Housing Justice League brings low and moderate-income renters together across the state to fight for our rights. Through people power and partnering with lawyers, we’re able to help prevent many evictions and directly change the laws, to keep more people and families in their homes!
ACCE continues to be at the forefront of housing justice efforts in California including the fight to expand tenant protections for all! Some of our major statewide victories through people power and organizing:
- Passing of AB 1482 Tenant Protections Act of 2019, which protects over 8 million renters and caps rent increases at 5% plus the cost of living.
- Passing SB 91- Covid Relief for Tenants which protects tenants from being evicted during the COVID 19 Pandemic and Statewide Rental Assistance for people affected financially by COVID 19 and are unable to pay rent
- During the COVID 19 crisis ACCE has informed thousands of tenants of their rights and inspired and encouraged thousands of supporters to take direct action to create change.
