Housing and Social Justice
Part of our role as a provider of affordable housing on the Eastside is to use our platform, guided by our mission, vision and values, to educate ourselves and others about racial injustice; so we can engage in anti-racist work to support equitable outcomes for the BIPOC lives at our communities and everywhere.
Housing Justice is a Social Justice Issue
In King County…
AS COMPARED TO
Median Black and Hispanic households find fewer areas affordable to them in King County.
Cost burden is unevenly distributed among King County residents.
Housing is a foundational right that creates stability, increases wealth, and offers security. The structures and systems in place are inherently unjust and rooted in white privilege, and have led to black communities disproportionately experiencing displacement, housing discrimination, poverty, and decreased earning potential. This results in black people experiencing homelessness, housing instability, evictions, and intergenerational poverty at a much higher rate.
We can’t do this work without you and your commitment to be anti-racist.
