Equity voters believe that public policy must be guided by a commitment to expand and ensure opportunities for all people to participate, prosper and reach their full potential in our society, regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, economic status, immigration status or zip code.
Like you, the ACLU Foundation of San Diego & Imperial Counties believes that our state should be a place where all Californians can participate, prosper, and reach their full potential. This is especially challenging for a growing number of Californians struggling to keep a roof over their heads, including hundreds of thousands of San Diegans.
The fact of the matter is, California’s housing affordability crisis is an urgent human and civil rights issue. This is why the ACLU is joining with concerned organizations across the state to educate voters about the importance of voting “YES” on Prop 10. We must pass this important measure to restore local governments’ power to address local needs for housing.
With an estimated 1.7 million Californians now spending more than 50% of their income on housing, our affordability crisis disproportionately hurts people with modest means. This is a diverse population that can include seniors on fixed incomes, people living with disabilities, young adults, people of color and immigrants. Ultimately, California’s too few affordable housing options and exorbitantly high rents burden already economically-marginalized communities and deny them the opportunity to thrive.
For California to truly be a just and inclusive state, local governments must address the need for affordable housing. We must ensure they have every possible tool to do so.
On November 6, Californians can act to end our state’s housing affordability crisis by voting “YES” on Prop 10 and restoring local governments’ power to better address local housing concerns.
We will be calling, texting, and knocking on our neighbors’ doors to make sure they vote “Yes” on Prop 10. Join us and learn more below!
Join us at our upcoming phone banks and door-to-door canvasses to make sure that Prop 10 wins in November.
