A VISION FOR INCLUSIVE
MASSACHUSETTS COALITION FOR RACIAL EQUITY IN HOUSING
Massachusetts Coalition For Racial Equity In Housing is a movement of affordable housing developers, advocacy organizations, lenders, community based organizations and committed advocates.
EMBRACING THE JOURNEY
Black people, particularly those with low to moderate incomes, will rent, own, and participate in housing development in ways that allow them to build wealth.
Black Wealth Building
Housing sector policy and planning decisions are made with the explicit goals of 1. remedying historic and contemporary housing injustices that have harmed Black and brown people and communities and 2. creating access and choice in communities they have been excluded from.
Inclusive housing opportunities and development without displacement
Black and brown people will shape the types of housing, infrastructure, and resources that should exist in their communities.
Self-determination and agency for marginalized Black and brown communities
Policies and plans will be reviewed with a fair housing lens and the analysis shared publicly.
Transparency and public accountability for the racialized harms and benefits of policy and planning decisions
Sector leadership will reflect the rich racial/ethnic diversity of the communities they serve and will lead their organizations to center equity in all organization actions.
Diverse sector leadership and equity-centered organizations
Housing sector policy and planning decisions are made with the explicit goal of remedying historic housing injustices that have harmed or excluded Black communities.
