Recently, dozens of cities participated in the #RenterWeekofAction to demand solutions to the renter affordability crisis. Our team partnered with Right to the City, Homes for All, and CarsonWatch to support these actions by producing fact sheets for the nation and 38 cities.* While renters are now the majority in the largest 100 cities, they are burdened by rising rents and low wages. If they paid only what they could afford on rent, they would have an extra $124 billion in their pockets each year, or $6,200 per rent-burdened household. View the fact sheets here and check out media coverage in Next City, CityLab, Truthout, and LA Weekly.
