Residents United Network (RUN)
of Residents United Network members talking about why they RUN!
Who are the Residents in Residents United Network?
We are seniors, farmworkers, and immigrants; we are Black, brown, and white, disabled and LGBTQ, working and retired.
Some of us have lived experience with homelessness, and some of us work in affordable housing. Others of us don’t have affordable housing yet but hope to soon.
What drives us?
What brings us together is the belief that we are more powerful when we are organized, and that to end California’s housing crisis, people who live in affordable housing must be as present in the halls of the Capitol as homeowners, developers, and landlords.
We believe affordable housing residents, who have historically been excluded from conversations about affordable housing policy, should be the moral center of the statewide fight to end homelessness and increase affordable housing in California.
Do you live in affordable housing – or wish you did? Look for information about how to join RUN on our member page.
Do you represent or work for a nonprofit affordable home developer? We’re excited to connect, whether you’re in one of our seven regions, you’re just outside one of them, or you’re somewhere far from where we are right now. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org. for more information.
