Building community requires the security of having housing not just for a month, but for years to come.
Yes, BUT... Will Council increase homelessness with a complete ban on RV's? Will landlords, or even Council, convince voters to go back to sky high rent increases and eviction without any reason? Mountain View Working families face big threats now, and in the 2020 election.
Yes — if we work together. Together we can respond to our region's housing crisis with policies that create and preserve housing for all of our community.
No! We can't fill City Council meetings with only experts — we need you! We will keep you updated, so that you will understand why some meetings, or emails or signature gathering makes a difference, and just can't wait.

Mountain View Housing Justice Coalition Meeting
Thursday, July 2, 7 pm
We will meet on Zoom. A link will emailed to mailing list subscribers.
Hope you'll join us on July 2!
Housing justice cannot be achieved without racial justice. From the history of redlining to predatory mortgage lending to our current gentrification crisis, we cannot address the housing issues of our community without working to dismantle racist systems.
The Mountain View Housing Justice Coalition stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and the ongoing struggle to end state-sanctioned violence, liberate Black people, and end white supremacy forever.
Words spoken by Martin Luther King a half century ago are still relevant:
“Certain conditions continue to exist in our society, which must be condemned as vigorously as we condemn riots. But in the final analysis, a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it that America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the Negro poor has worsened over the last few years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice, equality and humanity. And so in a real sense our nation’s summers of riots are caused by our nation’s winters of delay. And as long as America postpones justice, we stand in the position of having these recurrences of violence and riots over and over again.”
