Our mission is to protect the rights of tenants and to preserve and promote affordable and fair housing.
Housing Rights Initiative takes a proactive and systematic approach to targeting, investigating, and fighting fraudulent real estate practices, promoting fair housing, and connecting tenants to legal support. We educate and counsel tenants about their rights to fair and affordable housing and launch investigations against predatory real estate companies.
HRI’s data-driven model identifies properties where there is a high probability of systematic fraud and discrimination. We educate tenants about their rights to fair and affordable housing, launch investigations, and generate class action lawsuits against predatory real estate companies.
Through a legal mobilization effort, HRI lays the foundation for tenants who have been defrauded or discriminated against by the real estate industry, to seek redress and secure their rights under the law.
Housing Rights Initiative is a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and does not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates.
