Californian Renters Have Had Enough!

Year after year, wages in California have remained stagnant, while rents have increased astronomically. Half of all renters statewide — more than 3 million households — spend more than 30 percent of their income on rent, meeting the federal government’s definition of “rent-burdened.”

It’s not just renters: 16 percent of SoCal homeowners are also cost-burdened.

While high rents disproportionally and adversely affect low-income households, people of color, seniors, and families with children, California’s housing affordability crisis has a ripple effect that affects renters, homeowners, middle-income families, and low-income families alike. COVID-19 has made a brewing crisis hit its boiling point as millions of Californians face staggering unemployment and even further housing insecurity.

Housing is at the intersection of everything. It affects everything and all of us. 

How Does Proposition 21 Help?


Proposition 21 is a November 2020 state ballot initiative that will limit rent increases and preserve affordable housing to keep CA families in their homes. If passed, the measure would allow local communities to:

    • Limit Annual Rent Increases
    • Preserve Currently Affordable Housing
    • Incentivize the Construction of New Housing
    • Exempt Single-Family Homeowners
    • Guarantee Landlords a Fair Profit
