Housing and Mobility Justice
What We Do
Spaces For People to Thrive
AJC’s housing and mobility justice work champions the creation of spaces where people can thrive and access the resources and opportunities to lead lives of dignity—safe from violence, fear, and coercion. We cannot work to reimagine our systems of justice without also challenging structures of urban segregation, displacement, and artificial scarcity which reinforce the status quo and control and limit access to public space and amenities. We bring an active anti-racist perspective to urban planning issues and prioritize policies that support those who have been historically neglected, targeted, and disenfranchised by the status quo in Austin.
Access to Safe, Dignified, and Equitable Housing
We believe that all people deserve access to safe, dignified, and equitable housing. This includes undoing the legacies of segregation, resisting displacement, and securing spaces and territories in all parts of the city that are well-connected to the resources people need in order to thrive. We believe that accessibility, high quality public transit, bike infrastructure, and safe sidewalks are all inseparable from the broader effort to build communities that are free from carbon dependence, free from patterns of police violence, economic segregation, and educational inequality. Housing is a nexus that touches all struggles for justice, autonomy.
