Long Beach Residents Empowered (LiBRE)

Mission

LiBRE is a grassroots community organizing group advancing justice in disadvantaged communities through creation and preservation of affordable housing, renter protections, and community economic development.

Purpose

The primary purpose of LiBRE is to build community power by informing, educating, training and supporting low-income, working class, people of color and other marginalized, and oppressed communities in Long Beach to organize for progressive policies (Just Cause for eviction, Rent Control, Inclusionary Zoning) within the framework of housing justice. LiBRE is a multi-issue organization that will develop its own campaigns, or support existing, intersectional campaigns that affect housing such as: jobs/wages, homelessness, civic engagement, and by addressing the barriers to housing accessibility caused by criminalization.
