Inquilinxs Unidxs’ mission is to bring together tenants from Minneapolis’ most exploitative rental properties to analyze their housing problems, to organize around those problems, and to build affordable, dignified living spaces in Minneapolis. The communities most directly impacted by slum conditions are low-income people of color, immigrants, women and disabled people. They are working towards realizing racial justice through improving the housing of the people most affected by inequitable housing costs and poor conditions, organizing a base of power to demand the changes necessary across city and state lines.
