Speak Up For Housing Rights at Lincoln City Council

July 25, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Join us to highlight a specific action the City Council can take: ending source of income discrimination. 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 in the city council chambers to show there’s community support for these issues. If you have a housing rights shirt, wear it!
2. Share a comment with the City Council during the comment period! Need some pointers 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! Let them know you care about affordable housing in Lincoln!

The City Council meeting starts at 5:30 pm, and the comment period will take place once they finish with the planned agenda. Please note that the start time of the comment period can vary.
