Call Script

“Hello,

I am calling today to urge Supervisor [Name] to support the temporary rent freeze ordinance coming before the Board on July 31st. Rising rents can decimate livelihoods and push people into homelessness. 70% of renters in LA County are rent burdened, which means they spend more than 30% of their income on housing. Essentials like food, utilities, and healthcare are pushed aside out of necessity in order to make the rent. People who can’t make rent are displaced from their communities and forced to move outside of the county or become homeless. Tenant protections, like rent control, are some of the most important ways to counteract the housing and homelessness crisis. We must secure safe, healthy, and affordable homes for all.

I sincerely hope the people of LA County can rely on you to support this critical motion.

Thank you.”
