Whether we rent our homes or own them, all of us deserve stable housing. But when rent goes up suddenly from one month to the next, families are left without anywhere to go. That's why Saint Paul showed up powerfully at the polls last fall, and passed a strong rent stabilization policy.
This week, City Council will be hearing a new report from the community, with recommendations for how to keep rent stabilization strong. At the same time, Corporate megadevelopers have been pushing the City to weaken protections for renters, which would destabilize our neighborhoods by pricing out renters– especially renters of color.
We’re in a crucial moment, and we need all of us to come together and show our support for strong rent stabilization this Wednesday at City Hall. Make sure City Council knows that we want them to respect the will of the people, who voted YES to keep Saint Paul home for all of us, not just the wealthy!
Join us on Wednesday, July 13th, 5:30pm at City Hall, 15 W Kellogg Blvd, St Paul. Bring signs, raise your voice, and let the City know that we believe everyone deserves stable housing– no exceptions!
