Every person deserves the right to a safe, secure, and affordable place to live no matter what we look like or where we come from.
However, as the law in Lincoln currently stands, prospective tenants can be turned away from rental units simply because of the way they would pay for their rent, such as with a housing choice vouchers.
Housing choice vouchers are a critical tool in helping low-income families establish stability and escape the cycle of poverty. But right now, Lincoln offers no protection to these families, allowing landlords to impose unfair conditions or outright refuse to rent to them.
Banning source of income discrimination in Lincoln is a common-sense reform that would help protect thousands of local families.
By signing on to our petition, you are joining housing advocates in calling on the city to protect renters.
Will you help us reach our goal of 300 Lincolnites and advocates?
It’s time to ensure our community can better afford the rising cost of housing, promote inclusivity, and create a more equitable and prosperous future for all residents of Lincoln.
Thank you for your advocacy!
