The Rent is Too Damn High Mobilization

September 5, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 4:30 pm

 

28% of Michiganders are renters and many are struggling. Almost 700 Michiganders have pledged to meet at the Michigan State Capitol Building about the following solutions, among others:

  1. Rent Control. Remove the state-wide ban on rent control so municipalities can take action to stabilize rents and protect tenants.
  2. Housing First. $1 Billion in state funding to infuse into programs of direct service, rapid rehousing, and more.
  3. A Renter’s Bill of Rights. Fair chance housing for returning citizens, tenants’ right to organize and have counsel, relocation assistance, just cause eviction, a ban on hidden rental fees, and more!

Buses are going to the rally from Detroit and Ann Arbor. Details of departure and return times can be found at the links below:
