CAT is a tenant membership organization.  Low-income tenants – predominately low-wage workers, families with children, people living with disabilities, seniors, and people of color – are CAT’s primary membership base.  CAT is building a strong housing justice movement that is led and directed by those who are most impacted by Oregon’s affordable housing crisis – low-income renters.

fantastic

Make change happen in the next 24 hours to support Affordable Housing in Oregon!

How?

Make a call, send an email right away to the five senators below and tell them to please:

Support HB 2564 and restore local control over inclusionary housing.

Your quick action is needed!

Keep the message very short and sweet like this:

Affordable Housing is critical in cities all across the state, and local governments need every tool available to increase housing options for working families at all income levels. HB 2564 simply gives Oregon cities the opportunity to use the tool if they choose. Please support HB 2564 and restore local control over inclusionary housing.

More info:
Our senators have been hearing from the well-funded opposition for a long time, and there is a lot of misinformation out there, they need to hear overwhelming support from Affordable Housing advocates (that’s you!) from all over Oregon today and tomorrow.  

Your call and email TODAY really can make change happen!

Jurisdictions across the state have stepped forward to call on the legislature to repeal the ban on Inclusionary Zoning — Portland, Corvallis, Eugene, Hood River, Ashland, Milwaukie, Wilsonville, Multnomah County and Lincoln County, with local electeds in Bend and Washington County are calling for action too.
