Occupy Homes MN

Occupy Homes MN is a grassroots organization that identifies housing instability as a result of an economic system that privileges the greed of the richest 1 percent over the human rights of low income people and communities of color.

Born of the Occupy Wall Street movement, we believe the people who live and work in our communities should democratically control their land and housing, not the big banks who gambled with our homes and crashed the economy.

We work to defend our neighbors from foreclosure and homelessness by halting evictions and liberating vacant bank-owned homes for those who need shelter, while developing leadership and building consciousness among all members of the community. We seek to unite homeowners, tenants, and people experiencing homelessness to fight for safe and equitable housing as a human right through policy and system change.
