RESULTS advocates for policies that increase access to affordable rental housing, support homeownership, and tackle the racial wealth divide in the U.S.
So what’s RESULTS up to in 2020? Even with the elections looming, our advocacy isn’t waiting around. The work of equity and justice is needed now. Here are the two big campaigns we’re taking on in 2020.
Five years ago, I was sitting at home, feeling like I had no way of making change with my members of Congress. I was frustrated. I wanted to open up their perspectives and have conversations with them about issues I care about.
“I never thought I’d actually be able to see my representative in person,” said Mercedeh Tavacoli as she sat on a stone bench on Capitol Hill and took a breath.
The White House has released a series of harmful proposed rules that target low-income people and disproportionately harm communities of color. In addition to the important legislative advocacy our grassroots advocates are engaged in, RESULTS has submitted several comments on these proposed rule changes.
Before the holidays, Congress reached an agreement on spending bills and taxes and sent two packages to the president for signature. The good news is that the December 2019 deal includes an additional $239 million for global health programs and billions for housing assistance. And while the final package did not include critical expansions of tax credits for low-income workers and families, your hard work laid a strong foundation – including some bipartisan momentum – for when taxes are discussed again.
Today’s shortsighted budget is yet another reminder of why we need policymakers to focus on constructive, bipartisan solutions – not undermining the effective policies we already know work.
Today the administration announced that it is moving forward with a rule proposed last fall that will force immigrants to risk food, health care, and housing assistance in order to stay in the U.S.
Paychecks aren’t keeping up with rents. That forces millions of people in the U.S. to choose between a place to live and their other basic needs. And for some, it means not having a place to live at all. A renters’ tax credit could help change this.
Urge members of Congress to support a “renters’ tax credit” for low-income renters.
