Housing Rights Initiative takes a proactive and systematic approach to targeting, investigating, and fighting fraudulent real estate practices, promoting fair housing, and connecting tenants to legal support.

HRI’s data-driven model identifies properties where there is a high probability of systematic fraud and discrimination. HRI educates tenants about their rights to fair and affordable housing, launches investigations, and generates class action lawsuits against predatory real estate companies.

Through a legal mobilization effort, HRI lays the foundation for tenants who have been defrauded or discriminated against by the real estate industry, to seek redress and secure their rights under the law.
