Renters Respond to “Safe and Affordable Minneapolis” Attack on Tenant Protections
Everyone deserves a safe, dignified, and affordable home. But some landlords would rather protect their own profits over tenants’ rights in Minneapolis, launching the deceptive “Safe and Affordable Minneapolis” campaign to attack two proposed city ordinances for renter protections in Minneapolis.
On Thursday, renters and community organizers hosted a press conference to respond to this attack on renters rights by the Minnesota Multi-Housing Association.
Convened by Inquilinxs Unidxs Por Justicia, The Alliance, HOME Line, Take Action MN and Parks and Power, the event lifted up the voices of renters with direct experience of landlord discrimination, formerly incarcerated community members who have felt the devastating impact of the current discriminatory housing system and landlords who recognize that the entire community benefits when all individuals and families have access to safe, affordable and dignified housing.
