Movement for Justice in El Barrio is a People of Colour (POC)-led grassroots organization that has successfully prevented the displacement of hundreds of racialized people (largely women and children), living in rent-controlled apartments in East Harlem. Over the past few years, the organization has traveled to different cities to present their resident-led mobilizing strategies and exchange ideas with local organizers on ensuring community-owned, community-led housing rights victories. This September, the organization will be in Toronto, see details below on dates and events.
