Through their work with renters in the past three years, Inquilinxs Unidxs Por Justicia (United Renters for Justice) has noticed that the primarily problem renters are facing is increasing rent. At the same time, the solutions generally proposed by politicians and advocates focus on the development of more housing, or small tweaks to support renters rights to live in a dignified home. However, renters feel that a solution that doesn’t limit the cost of existing housing is fundamentally not going to solve the problem. This project is to support renter leadership to build the political will for policy change that will limit the increases in rent, specifically rent control.
