The rent is too

The rent is too damn high. Median rent in the US is now over $2000 for the first time ever. Rent is a driving factor in overall inflation, rising faster than it has in over 35 years. Most of us spend most of our money each month on rent and utilities. This is a national emergency, and something’s gotta give.


The President can and should do something about the rent. The Homes Guarantee is a campaign, led by tenants, organizing to ensure that every person has a safe, accessible, truly affordable home.

Right now, we’re focused on getting the Biden administration to declare a state of emergency and take executive action to regulate rents. Over 250+ tenant-led organizations have called for this action, and dozens of tenants have met with key officials in the White House about our demands, but the President has failed to respond.
