Communities Over Commodities-People-Driven Alternatives to an Unjust Housing System

The Right To The City Alliance seeks to create regional and national impacts in housing, human rights, urban land, community development, civic engagement, criminal justice, immigrant rights and environmental justice. Right To The City was born out of a desire by members, organizers and allies in the United States to have a stronger movement for urban justice. The Right to the City Alliance asserts that everyone — particularly the disenfranchised — not only has a right to the city, but as inhabitants, have a right to shape it, design it, and operationalize an urban human rights agenda. This report advances a vision that viable housing alternatives exist outside the market. At the core of these alternatives are decommodified land and housing. (2018)
