This group organizes with tenants to fight abusive slumlords, greedy property management companies, and luxury developers who all participate in and profit from the Gentrification that is overtaking Midtown Omaha. While Urban Sprawl continues in West & North Omaha, Real Estate Developers have turned “The Housing Market” upside down in the urban core of Omaha by competing with first-time homebuyers for affordable housing stock and building nothing but luxury apartments.
Mark and this Organization fight back by organizing tenants, going with tenants to negotiate with Landlords, holding sit-ins in the offices of slumlords, going to Eviction Court with tenants, helping Tenants move, and building tenant unions at individual buildings all across Omaha. This isn’t Electoral work – this is grassroots organizing to take power away from Landlords and Property Owners and give it back to Tenants. This isn’t Political Activism – it’s Community Organizing.
