The COVID-19 pandemic demands a crisis response
More than 140 statewide organizations in California, including Housing Is A Human Right, have sent a letter to Gov. Gavin Newsom to demand that he suspends rent and enforces a rent stop. Collectively, our organizations represent millions of tenants who have lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. How can tenants, small businesses, and homeowners pay back rent/mortgage when we have lost work? Before the pandemic, millions of Californias already lived paycheck-to-paycheck just to pay the rent. Sign the letter to Gov. Newsom and demand that he #CANCELRENT to save millions from rent debt and potential homelessness.
The housing affordability crisis is a public health crisis
Housing Is A Human Right is the housing advocacy division of AIDS Healthcare Foundation, the world’s largest HIV/AIDS medical-care provider. In the United States, AHF patients have been negatively impacted by rising housing costs and gentrification. Unaffordable, unstable housing threatens their health. In response, AHF, which was founded as a housing organization for terminally ill AIDS patients, launched Housing Is A Human Right and Healthy Housing Foundation. AHF believes that housing is a human right, and that we are facing a crisis that demands urgent action.
The Eviction Defense Network (EDN) is a nonprofit community organization dedicated to protecting the right to decent, safe, sanitary and affordable housing.
