Your Voice Needed for Bill to Ban Retaliatory Evictions

Georgia Appleseed has been leading the charge on HB 346 , which would ban retaliatory evictions. If the bill passes, renters can't be served with eviction papers just for filing complaints about unhealthy and unsafe living conditions.

Unhealthy housing especially affects children. Mold and pest infestations and other dangerous conditions lead to injuries and chronic lifelong illnesses, like asthma. Georgia tenants are often evicted if they complain. After eviction, families have a harder time finding a place to live, children are forced to change schools, and families are forced into less stable and less desirable housing.

Thanks to our supporters, the bill passed the House and is now before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

We ask that you contact your Senator and members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to urge them to VOTE YES on HB 346.
