Since 1985, CAFHA has spearheaded the movement to dismantle racial segregation in housing throughout Chicago and surrounding communities.
CAFHA centers its work in the leadership of those directly impacted by longstanding housing discrimination.
POLICY AND RESEARCH
CAFHA is a leading voice on housing policy and research. We take an intersectional approach to the analysis of current laws and proposed legislation, existing programs, and emerging housing issues to inform community members and other stakeholders of challenges to fair housing and recommended pathways to decent and safe housing for all people, particularly those impacted by racist policies of the past.
BROAD-BASED COALITION BUILDING
CAFHA is committed to working with its members to advocate for policies that help eliminate housing discrimination, increase the availability of affordable housing, and create equitable and inclusive communities. We bring together diverse perspectives of industry experts, government representatives, advocates, and persons with lived experiences to address disparities in housing.

CAFHA provides expert training sessions and capacity-building opportunities on fair housing-related topics including existing protections, emerging housing issues, and more. CAFHA is dedicated to amplifying member-led efforts to advance fair housing justice,
