Housing Justice

Answer

Miami-Dade County faces a housing crisis: we are the second most unaffordable county in the country for renters. Catalyst Miami believes housing is a human right. Our housing justice leadership curriculum, HEAL, tackles this community-identified issue through racial and economic justice, health equity, and climate change frameworks. 

In addition, Catalyst Miami is committing to the following housing justice policy priorities. 

In 2020, we commit to...
  • supporting affordable housing master plan implementation by participating in and informing the efforts of on-going networks, including the Miami-Dade County Affordable Housing Blueprint and Connect Capital coalitions; and
  • working to oppose harmful zoning and land use patterns through network participation in the Miami Climate Alliance, as well as in the Public Land for Public Good coalition.
At the state level, we are...
  • supporting the demands of the Florida Statewide Housing Justice Coalition; and
  • advocating for increased investment in affordable housing and opposing regressive, discriminatory housing policy that favors corporations over people.
