community power (2019)
“We are not in the midst of a housing crisis. Calling it a housing crisis benefits the people who design housing, who build housing, who profit from housing, not the people who live in it. It encourages us to think in abstractions, in numbers, in interchangeable “units,” and not about people, or about power. We don’t have a housing crisis. We have a tenants’ rights crisis.”
It is essential for tenants to organize in order to fight for collective rights. Especially in a city like Boston that seeks to benefit developers and landlords, community power is crucial. This public campaign focuses on the rising cost of living in Boston, and calls renters/tenants to create or join tenant coalitions in order to fight the commodification of our living space.
