For Immediate Release 

“Californians are counting on our elected leaders to advance big, bold solutions for a future where all our families, seniors, veterans, workers, and all our neighbors have access to safe, stable, affordable homes. To get there, we’re going to need to embrace new strategies and commit to large scale investments.

While we’re disappointed that SB 50 did not pass today, we know that today’s vote does not mark the end of the conversation; it instead begins a new one.

As co-sponsors of Senate Bill 50; as vocal advocates for the 3Ps framework that anchors production, preservation, and protections together; and as a longstanding organization with racial equity and inclusion embedded in our core values and mission for 40 years, NPH is committed to advancing this dialogue. We can create meaningful solutions for all our neighbors, and we must do it together.

NPH is committed to partnering with our members, partners, community stakeholders, and elected officials to chart a path to a Bay Area future where everyone has a place to call home and where low-income communities and communities of color stay and prosper. We call on every Californian to join us.”
