Movement for Justice in El Barrio (Movement) is a community organization fighting for justice in East Harlem, New York. Movement was founded to fight against a voracious trend towards gentrification that is devouring low-income housing and displacing immigrant & low-income families from their homes.

Through strategies such as protests, litigation, and media outreach, Movement has organized tenants to achieve thousands of repairs and has successfully challenged attempts by aggressive landlords and multi-national corporations to illegally evict them from their homes.

Movement recently launched an immigrants rights campaign.

Movement for Justice in El Barrio was named "Best Power to the People Movement in New York City" by the Village Voice
