Right to Housing Alliance

Right to Housing Alliance

"Right to Housing Alliance (RTHA) is a tenant advocacy and human rights organization who educate and assist renters impacted by the affordable housing crisis and tenants who are dealing with Slumlords in Baltimore.

Our mission ""Building a movement by helping,educating,and empowering tenants through their own fight to stand up against housing injustice in Baltimore.
We have been working with tenants and homeowners since spring of 2012 using a model called the “Sword & Shield,” developed by City Life/Vida Urbana in Boston: the “sword” is the power of organized communities to act collectively for justice, and the “shield” is legal strategy, defense, and information. We have added a third component that we still have not named, which we are calling “The Other Thing.” The ""other thing"" is leadership development, education, and collective political consciousness-raising.

Our goal in fusing these three elements—action, legal support, and education—is to build a powerful and knowledgeable base of residents who will lead the fight to ensure that human rights values of universality, equity, participation, peace, and dignity are reflected in policies and narrative of how we think about housing in Baltimore.Through direct action, coalition building, education and advocacy, were building a movement for Human Right to Housing. Right to Housing Alliance currently participates with Baltimore Renters United http://bmorerentersunited.org which is a broader coalition of community advocates working together to make renting safer and to fight housing injustice in Baltimore."
