OUR HOMES OUR VOTES: PLEDGE TO BE A HOUSING VOTER!
Are you concerned about the availability, affordability, and quality of housing in Rhode Island?
For far too many of our neighbors -- especially those with the lowest income -- a safe, healthy, affordable home is out of reach. That's why it is important to vote and make your voice heard in the upcoming elections this fall. Voting in local, state, and national elections is how we choose who will represent us and make decisions about the important issues that affect our lives and community -- like housing! We can't afford to sit on the sideline while other voters make those choices without us.
Being a voter is an important action you can take to support affordable housing. Increasing production and improving the quality of affordable homes requires strong, consistent budget investments and policy support from our elected leaders. Voting is how we hold power accountable. When residents who care about housing turn out to vote, elected officials are more responsive to their concerns.
