Who We Are
Founded in 2017, the Coalition For Property Tax Justice is a collective of several long-standing Detroit grassroots organizations formed to accomplish three goals:
Stop unconstitutional property tax assessments
Compensate Detroit residents who overpaid or have already lost their homes because of illegally inflated property taxes
Suspend pending property tax foreclosures on owner-occupied homes until it is confirmed that the delinquent taxpayers were not unconstitutionally assessed
Since the Coalition’s inception, we’ve accomplished an impressive amount. From starting an unprecedented Dignity Restoration Housing Program to shaping the settlement of a groundbreaking lawsuit and solidifying the wins in a City ordinance, Coalition member organizations haven’t stopped fighting for the rights of Detroit’s working families.
