Our lawmakers’ decisions impact tenants. At the city, state, and national level, our elected officials write laws, pass ordinances and codes, and create or dismantle programs. Many lawmakers don’t know what we as tenants experience and how their decisions will impact the health and wellbeing of our families and communities. It is up to us to show up and speak out for our rights.
