Upstate/Downstate Housing Alliance
EVERY NEW YORKER, NO MATTER WHERE THEY LIVE, HAS THE RIGHT TO A SAFE AND STABLE HOME.
The Upstate-Downstate Housing Alliance is a diverse coalition of tenants, homeless people, manufactured housing residents, and advocates from across New York. We represent New Yorkers from every part of the state.
We are united in our fight for stronger tenant protections, an end to evictions, and an end to homelessness in New York.
We believe that housing is a human right. But for too many families, that right is far from a reality. Rents are rising across the State while wages have remained stagnant. Landlords are getting richer and richer, while tenants are living on the brink of an eviction. Most tenants in New York State live without any basic rights to stay in their homes. This means that families are unable to enforce their rights to habitable housing, living in fear of a retaliatory eviction or a sudden rent hike.
