There is a housing crisis in the United States.
Millions of low-income households in the U.S. are rent burdened, rent stabilized tenants are being defrauded in New York City, and housing discrimination runs rampant across the country.
Our lack of affordable housing is the barrier to making housing a human right.
How is it a problem?
The United States needs 6.8 million new affordable housing units for extremely low-income renters. Due to a lack of affordable housing and predatory real estate practices, affordable housing must be protected, preserved, and built.
Tenants are left to fend for themselves.
The burden is unfairly placed on tenants to understand complex real estate laws.
