Malika Conner is the Senior Organizer for Anti-Displacement. At ANHD, Malika works with members and allies on campaigns to preserve affordable housing, prevent displacement and harassment, and strengthen tenants’ rights.

She grounds her organizing in transformative practices, and is committed to building local power, promoting community ownership, and advancing economic, gender, and racial justice. Her previous work has focused on creating good jobs for low-income communities of color in the transportation and technology sectors, building the capacity of tenants’ rights organizations through grassroots leadership development, and facilitating support groups and “Know Your Rights” trainings for survivors of domestic violence.

In her spare time, Malika enjoys reading, long walks with her beagle Lola, and binge-watching TV shows.
