About

No one should have to choose between paying for food or housing. All of us - ALL OF US - deserve to have shelter from the storm, a permanent home, and food and medicine to keep us nourished and healthy. Now more than ever, our collective well-being depends on it. Thousands of us across California are coming together to demand an immediate cancellation of rent and mortgage payments until this crisis lifts.

The Housing Justice League brings low and moderate income renters together across the state to fight for our rights. Using people power, and partnering with lawyers and supporters across the state, we are able to help prevent many evictions and change the laws, in order to keep more people and families in their homes!

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 more than 15,000 members across California. ACCE is raising the voices of everyday Californians, neighborhood by neighborhood, to fight for the policies and programs we need to improve our communities and create a brighter future. A multi-issue organization, ACCE and its members are dedicated to the struggle for economic, racial and social justice.

We have been at the forefront of the fight for tenant protections for years, playing a major role in the passage of AB 1482, which protects over 8 million renters and caps increases at five percent plus the cost of living. We were in Sacramento demanding that the Governor’s moratorium be strengthened. And we are in the streets and the courthouses of cities throughout California, ensuring that tenants have both legal representation and the tools to take direct action to keep the housing, and keep it affordable.
