We demand a national Homes Guarantee to combat COVID-19

U.S. Federal Government

America is experiencing a public health crisis. COVID-19 affects and will affect poor and working class community members the most. Rather than prioritizing public money on corporate bailouts, we can stand united with frontline communities to ensure our collective well-being through this crisis and rewrite the rules to build a healthier and stronger country for generations to come.

This crisis illuminates the need for a robust public sector that can guarantee housing as a right: a Homes Guarantee.

We demand immediate federal action:
  • Zero out rent and mortgage payments nationwide
  • Nationwide eviction/foreclosure moratorium
  • Ban on utility shut-offs and universal service mandate
  • Provide homes and expanded services for people experiencing homelessness
  • $2,000 cash assistance to all people
  • Support for public housing residents
  • A just, green transition post-pandemic

In this fight, we will win short-term relief for our vulnerable community members, and we will never lose focus on ultimate goal: housing must be guaranteed as a public good, not treated as a commodity. We are here for the longer struggle to ensure that everyone has a safe, accessible, sustainable, truly and permanently affordable home.

If you're with us, co-sign these demands and tell the federal government we need comprehensive housing relief now.
