The mission of Inquilinxs Unidxs por Justicia (United Renters for Justice) is to bring groups of tenants in Minneapolis' worst housing together to analyze problems in their living situations; and to strategize, organize, and mobilize around those problems to create affordable and dignified homes in Minneapolis. They organize tenants through assemblies where they can share their struggles and build a single collective experience. This shared experience becomes the foundation of the struggle against landlord power. Fear is only dangerous when it is isolating. When they speak of it, it turns to a solution. Inquilinxs Unidxs por Justicia (United Renters for Justice) wants to work with landlords, but when landlords refuse Inquilinxs Unidxs por Justicia (United Renters for Justice) creates pressure through court or creative community action.
