It’s not acceptable in a wealthy country like Australia public housing should be dismantled or privatized.
This election year, let your elected representatives know that you expect them to take action in addressing the housing crisis by maintaining safe, secure affordable public housing which helps regulate the private rental market by keeping rents down.
Public Housing availability affects private renters, families, the homeless, the whole community and will continue to affect future generations.
As the election draws near, members of Parliament and hopeful candidates will pay heed to their own community, and to voters in their own electorate so let your thoughts on public housing and the housing shortage crisis be known.
To get action on Public Housing, we need people like you to add their voices to the public discussion. Your support can make a huge difference to the success of this campaign and ensuring that not only public housing remains but that private rent remains affordable.
