Housing Rights Night @ Lincoln City Council

June 27 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us to make Monday, June 27, housing rights night at the Lincoln City Council meeting. In 2020, the Lincoln City Council published the Affordable Housing Coordinated Action Plan. This plan was created with the knowledge that Lincoln is lacking affordable housing, and the need only continues to grow. Community advocates made their voices heard through the creation of this plan, and it’s time to make our voices heard again for housing rights.
During the City Council’s comment period on June 27, join us to highlight a policy we hope to see introduced as an ordinance soon: an end to source-of-income discrimination. The public hearing is in Room 112 of the County-City Building, 555 S 10th St.
Have you ever seen a rental posting that says something like “no vouchers” or “no Section 8”? For neighbors that use housing vouchers to secure affordable housing, these blanket statements mean that at least 20 percent of voucher users are unable to ever use them. Lincoln can change this so we are fully utilizing our housing affordability tools and ensure that more Lincolnites can find a place to call home.
You can participate in this housing rights night by:
1. Being present. Sit with us at City Council to show community support for these issues.
2. Share a comment with the City Council during the comment period. Need some guidance crafting your testimony? Email Lizzie at lturner@neappleseed.org and check out this Guide to City Council Comments: https://bit.ly/3O0N8q7
3. Call/email/tweet City Council members to let them know you care about affordable housing in Lincoln. Learn more about source-of-income discrimination here.
The Council meeting starts at 5:30 pm CDT and the comment period will take place once it finishes with the set agenda. Please note that the start time of the comment period can vary.
