Housing is a Human Right

Less than half of the population of Milwaukee owns the property they live in¹. The rest of us rent, and as renters we don’t benefit from the privileges of private property ownership.

We as renters are all vulnerable to factors like rising rents, stagnant wages and precarious conditions which threaten our ability to secure safe, comfortable housing.

Housing should not be a commodity; to be bought and sold, speculated on, leveraged and withheld from those in need.

How We Organize

The Milwaukee Autonomous Tenants Union is an all-volunteer organization fighting to end housing insecurity and the commodification of housing altogether. Through direct action, we organize to challenge evictions, win demands from negligent landlords, and work towards community control of housing for everyone.
