MHAction Joins CPD Network

Please join us in welcoming MHAction to the CPD network! MHAction empowers homeowners and residents in manufactured home communities to build and win local, state and national issue campaigns that protect and strengthen the long-term viability and affordability of their communities. MHAction organizes across class, race, religion, age, citizenship status, sexual orientation and gender lines in order to build successful issue campaigns.

MHAction has successfully pushed for advances in state and local policy including the passage of a rent stabilization ordinance in Humboldt County, California and a statewide homeowner help-line in Utah. In 2016, MHAction secured an agreement to create a homeowner grievance-procedure process with Equity Lifestyle Properties, Inc., the nation’s largest corporate owner of manufactured housing communities. In March of 2017, MHAction worked with homeowners in a co-operatively owned community in Florida to resist buy-out offers from private equity firms. Most importantly, MHAction has emerged as a new and unique source of grassroots voices for social, racial and economic justice work in exurban and rural geographies across the country.

MHAction leaders have already started to collaborate with other powerful CPD affiliates like NYCC and ACCE to build a rural-exurban-urban housing justice alliance. Joining the CPD Network will allow MHAction to grow the reach of the progressive movement in rural and exurban geographies and build multi-issue campaigns to strengthen the movement for racial, gender, and economic justice.
