About Us

We are an organization made up of shareholders of Mitchell-Lama coops who are fighting to keep our homes affordable and in the Mitchell-Lama program—both for ourselves and for future generations of moderate- and middle-income New Yorkers.


We are unequivocally against the privatization of Mitchell-Lama cooperative housing. As shareholders, we have enjoyed so many of the benefits of living in Mitchell-Lama housing. In return, our responsibility to the City has been, and continues to be, to oversee the governance of our buildings in order to preserve them as an affordable housing resource.


Getting Started

CU4ML officially began in March of 2009, though many of the individuals who make up the organization have been working to preserve Mitchell-Lama coops for years. The organization currently includes members from 40 Mitchell-Lama coops around New York City, which provide affordable homes for over 38,000 families.


As individual buildings, we have faced harassment, intimidation, and campaigns of misinformation by those who seek to privatize our homes. We have now joined as one voice to save our affordable coops, protect the rights of shareholders and work to expand the Mitchell-Lama program.


We hope you will join us in COOPERATORS UNITED FOR MITCHELL-LAMA!
