Community Development Organizer – Housing
Access Living’s Disability Rights Action Coalition for Housing (DRACH) fights for equitable, sustainable housing developments that meet the needs of low-income households, people with disabilities, and other historically marginalized groups.
In addition to grassroots advocacy, DRACH members teach organizations and the broader community about the need for housing accessibility.
DRACH works with coalitions throughout Chicago, including the Chicago Housing Initiative and Lift the Ban, which seek to expand and protect subsidized or affordable rental housing. Currently, DRACH is campaigning for accessibility in Chicago homeless shelters.
