About The Asian Coalition for Housing Rights
The Asian Coalition is a broad coalition of grassroots community organizations, NGOs, architects and engineers currently working in 215 cities across Asia. ACHR was established in 1988 in response to public evictions in South Korea before the Summer Olympics; the founders started ACHR to advocate for squatters and impoverished communities that face eviction.
In its 25 years of operation, ACHR has expanded to include a variety of supportive activities on many scales. It supports small-scale upgrades and community improvements, as well as larger city-wide initiatives.
The Asian Coalition for Housing Rights is a Curry Stone Foundation Social Design Circle Honoree. Read more about it here.
