Join the fight to give renters a voice


For families that can barely make rent, home has become a cause of stress rather than a source of security. It's time renters had a voice. 

Make Room is a campaign to move America's renters to the top of the agenda.

Nationally, 11 million households, or one in four families that rent, spend more than half of their income on rent and utilities.

This results in nearly impossible decisions between rent and paying for groceries, medicine, childcare and other essentials.

Launched in May 2015, Make Room advocates to build more affordable homes and help families keep more money in their pockets to afford their rent.

When families are able to afford decent homes, they have a better shot at success in life. Without one, millions of hard-working families who aspire to a better future will fall through the cracks. 

Sign the pledge to get renters on our nation’s agenda.

This petition starter stood up and took action. Will you do the same?
