Universal Resident & Tenant Collaboration Initiative

Our URTCI is focused on developing a coalition of resident, tenants and other stake holders for a better quality of life with sustainability. We help or facilitate solving housing issues by collectively organizing all stake holders to bring about positive changes. Brite Leadership Coalition is the place where advocates can galvanize their collective will for change, empowerment and or correction of the quality of life for its members. We will also help tenants form tenant/block associations and launch campaigns to address concerns. BLC's organizing principle is for each member organization to maintain their own autonomy while collectively working to achieve our agreed on agenda.


If you are personally or collectively looking for an organization to partner with to strengthen your advocacy BLC is that organization.
