What we’re working towards

What we’re working towards

Housing is a human right. We believe all tenants deserve dignified housing and that technology plays a supportive role in equipping tenants and the housing justice movement with the tools, information, and organizing power critical to this fight for racial and economic justice.

How do we achieve housing justice?

How do we achieve housing justice?

Demand repairs. Fight displacement. Uncover truth from data.

In collaboration with tenants, organizers, and advocates, we build accessible tools to help renters assert their rights. By making data easy to understand, we not only expose hidden truths about big real estate, but work with our partners to provide concrete data in support of stronger tenant protection laws and policies.

Value the whole human

We prioritize understanding, patience, and empathy both internally and externally. With the goal of building accessible and inclusive products, we foster relationships between our staff and the housing justice community. While we remain dedicated to responding to the urgent needs of renters, we prioritize our employee’s well-being above quick execution.

Use technology as a tool to further housing justice; not as a solution

We design our tools as means to build tenant power and not as solutions to the housing crisis. We build our products to resist oppressive systems and harness the power of collective action.
