See a local story in your newspaper about the affordable housing crisis or how rising rents are hurting veterans, working families, seniors, people with disabilities? Is there a story about a housing or homelessness ordinance, policy or funding decision going before the City Council or County Board of Supervisor? Maybe community partners are celebrating the unveiling of an affordable housing project or breaking ground on a project that will help families, seniors or people who have experienced homelessness.
These can provide great opportunities to submit a brief Letter to the Editor (LTE) and lift up affordable housing solutions appearing before Bay Area voters on our November ballots! Share your own perspective or personal story and information about Prop 1, Prop 2, and other critical local measures. We encourage supporters to use our tools provided here to send a personal letter to their local papers to encourage community members to vote YES on the affordable housing opportunities in front of us this November.
LTEs are typically 150 words or less and must be from a local resident. Do your best to localize and comment on a specific story or timely event.
