WHY:

Many cities throughout the United States, like Los Angeles, are facing an affordable housing and homelessness crisis. Rents have skyrocketed, homelessness is on the rise and residents face gentrification and displacement. Advocates representing six states from across the country will convene to share best practices on how to win and overcome challenges regarding affordable housing, rent control, tenant rights and homelessness.

"Hosting this national conference is a way for community members, key legislators, and the media to come together and have a much needed discussion on ways to combat the homelessness crisis not only affecting Los Angeles but the entire country," said Susie Shannon, Policy Director, Housing Is A Human Right. "With so many unhoused individuals dying on the streets each year, finding affordable housing and rent control solutions is long overdue."
