I pledge to:

  • Support the leadership and solutions of people most impacted by the 
    affordability and displacement crises, especially working-class 
    communities and communities of color.

  • Challenge people who are imposing solutions on working-class communities 
    and communities of color. I will call on them to follow communities’ 
    lead instead.

  • Fight alongside people facing displacement and eviction to stay 
    in their homes.

  • Fight for new housing that truly meets the needs and incomes of 
    working-class communities and communities of color, not accept vast 
    amounts of luxury and high-end housing as the solution.

  • Fight for the power and voice of working-class communities and 
    communities of color to win development and policies that stabilize 
    their communities.

    I pledge to fight my suburban neighbors who want to keep people out, not those who are just trying to stay in their communities.

    As someone who has seen the deep scars that displacement can leave in a community, I hope we can work together to fight it from happening.
