Our housing campaigns integrate the efforts of organized tenants, homeowners and small businesses in our community fighting against the forces of gentrification, displacement and government corruption.

Pilsen and La Villita Homeowners and Small Businesses Demand Property Tax Assessment Reform
Property Tax Assessments have gone up for many homeowners in Pilsen and Little Village. We are fighting hard to ensure that the Office Cook County Assessor Fritz Kaegi properly and fairly reassess all properties in Cook County.
As such, we have demanded the immediate extension of the appeals until the end of the year, a reassessment of all properties with an increase of 25% or more, and working towards solutions to address speculation and gentrification which has driven up housing costs in our communities for years.
We urged our local elected officials including 7th District Cook County Commissioner Alma Anaya and 25th ward Alderman Byron Sigcho-Lopez to work with the community to help fix our broken system!
Support Tenant's Rights during COVID-19
Although the federal moratorium on evictions expired at end of July and the State of Illinois moratorium ends at the end of August; thousands of renters throughout Chicago and Illinois face the possibility of eviction due to owing back rent at no fault of their own.
Please check out Legal Aid Chicago for ‘know your rights’ information and resources available to you, your family and your community. If you are facing a lock-out, harassment of any kind from your landlord or served an illegal eviction, please contact the Chicago Tenants Movement for direct support!
We will be continuing to organize tenants in our communities and push for legislation that will help both renters and small homeowners and prevent further displacement in our communities.
