Homes Guarantee Candidate Pledge

“I pledge to advance policies that move housing from commodity to human right.

I pledge my commitment to eradicating homelessness once and for all.

I pledge to design housing policies as racial and climate justice interventions.

I pledge to increase investment in public and social housing.

I pledge to support universal rent control policies.

I pledge to reject any developer and real estate contributions that my campaign may be offered, and to return any developer and real estate money that I have already taken.

I pledge to campaign on the Homes Guarantee (ex: talk about it at forums and town halls, include in canvassing scripts, arrange meetings with local tenant and community organizations to grow my own understanding, proudly display my support for the Homes Guarantee on my website and other campaign materials, etc.)

I pledge to run a campaign that is accountable to a local base of tenants, and to meet with members of the Homes Guarantee team within 60 days of victory.”
