Urban Habitat is one of the few organizations working across sectors and across issues to empower low-income people of color. The organization has been at the forefront of the social justice movement making the case for equity and reframing the debate to ensure that race and class are a central part of the conversation.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

hire enough staff to win better transportation access for low-income people; to facilitate the development of decent, affordable housing; to make quality, living-wage jobs a reality; prevent toxic dumping and other operations in low-income communities that cause health problems; and ensure that development does not displace low-income people of color.
