Guest post by Rod Wilson: Is your rent too high?

Tell your legislators today that working families deserve rent control. This winter, we talked to thousands of voters about the need for rent control in our city and state and we heard it over and over again - people are struggling to keep up with rising rents. In nine wards across the city, voters were asked if we should lift the ALEC-backed statewide ban on rent control and over 70% of them said yes.

Now legislators in Springfield are considering a bill that would both repeal the ban and bring rent stabilization to Illinois!
Today, housing advocates, renters, and small landlords are on their way to Springfield to ask for a YES vote on the Rent Control Act (SB 3512), which would lift the ban and regulate how much rent can increase. Will you join them by sending an email to your State Senator and Representative and let them know you support SB 3512?

If you're tired of ever rising rents, send an email to our lawmakers today and tell them you support the Rent Control Act.
In Solidarity,
