AFREF, in partnership with Capital Strategies for the Common Good, the Private Equity Stakeholder Project, and Bargaining for the Common Good, have produced a report highlighting how, in recent decades, housing has become increasingly commodified and financialized, while tenants in communities across the country are being crushed under unsustainable rent burdens and a shortage of affordable housing.

This report was written by Mad Bankson, Amrit Sidhu, Dustin Duong, Sara Myklebust, and Oscar Valdes Viera. Additional research and editorial support was provided by Jordan Ash, Caroline Nagy, and Aditi Sen.
