Presenter:

Congressman Earl Blumenuaer (OR)

Description:
The People’s Housing Platform, a collection of seven Congressional bills, is a bold vision for robust investments in proven solutions to this country’s affordable housing and homelessness crisis. Hear from Congressman Earl Blumenauer (OR) outlining how these bills can strengthen tenants’ rights, reduce the number of individuals experiencing homelessness, significantly expand public housing and affordable apartments built with the national Housing Trust Fund while preventing displacement. These bold proposals center the Federal government once again in a leadership role to end homelessness and housing poverty once and for all. Other congressional leaders advancing these bills include Representatives Ayanna Pressley (MA), Jesús “Chuy” García (IL), Pramila Jayapal (WA), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Ilhan Omar (MN), and Rashida Tlaib (MI).
