Unlock NYC is a tech nonprofit majority-led by women who have experienced housing discrimination because they use government assistance to help pay the rent.

Our free mobile chatbot allows prospective tenants to easily record phone calls and create a paper trail when landlords illegally turn them away. We connect our users to government agencies and other resources so they can exercise their rights and find housing.

Advocates, attorneys, and cities use our data to understand trends, develop stronger fair housing policies, and open more doors for millions of low-income and homeless American households who use rental assistance programs.
