COVID 19 crisis demands a crisis response from Gov Newsom
How can Californians pay back rent when they can’t work now?
Over 140 state-wide organizations, including HHR, have sent a letter to demand that Governor Gavin Newsom suspend rent and enforce a rent stop. Collectively, our organizations represent millions of tenants who have lost their jobs due to the stay-at-home order by the Governor. How can tenants, small businesses, and homeowners pay back rent/mortgage when we are not working now? Due to the affordability crisis, millions of Californias already lived check-to-check just to pay the rent before the crisis. 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.
