Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry, in partnership with Enterprise Community Partners, the Fair Housing Center for Rights & Research, Neighborhood Connections, and the Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless, is asking the next mayor of Cleveland to Protect Cleveland Renters on Day One.
This includes – on their first day in office - introducing legislation that would end Source of Income discrimination and advance Pay-to-Stay protections and establishing a group to develop a comprehensive Renter Bill of Rights.
These deeply researched, community informed, little-to-no-cost actions will help to ensure no Clevelander is denied housing because of how they plan to pay for rent, provides protections so no resident is unfairly evicted, and gives much-needed voice to renters across the City. At a time when housing is truly healthcare, these critical actions must be taken immediately.
As longtime supporters of LMM’s advocacy efforts, will you sign onto a petition that urges mayoral candidates Kevin Kelley and Justin Bibb to Protect Renters on Day One?
After you sign on to support, tune into the OrganizeOhio Cleveland Mayoral Candidate Forum at 12:30 today and ask Candidates Kelley and Bibb to Protect Cleveland Renters on Day One!
