Our Homes, Our Future: How Rent Control Can Build Stable, Healthy Communities
Amid the worst renter crisis in a generation, it is time for policymakers to respond to the call for rent control to protect renters from skyrocketing rents and displacement. Join PolicyLink, Right to the City Alliance, and Center for Popular Democracy to learn more about a new report, “Our Homes, Our Future: How Rent Control Can Build Stable, Healthy Communities”, which sheds light on the unprecedented scale of the crisis facing renters and the potential to stabilize 12.7 million renter households nationwide through existing organizing campaigns for rent control.
Report co-author Sarah Treuhaft will highlight key findings from the report, and speakers from Oregon and New York will discuss their local campaigns and the growing movement led by renters to push for stronger tenant protection laws.
