The deadlines are upon us for our critical housing bills to move forward this legislative session.

Can you carve out a few minutes over the next few days to tackle a couple of key actions on each of our priority bills? Let’s go for it!


Transfer Fee for Affordable Housing * (thanks to our own Senator Jo Comerford for her lead sponsorship) and
Right to Counsel in Evictions

Send one email to the Housing Committee Chairs and House and Senate Leaders listed below and copy your own legislators.

  1. Copy and paste this list of email addresses into your “to” line:
  2. Find your own senator and representative here and add them to the “cc” line
  3. Copy this text in the body of the email (and/or feel free to adapt):

Dear House and Senate Leaders:

Please act now to pass the Transfer Fee for Affordable Housing (S.868/H.1377) and Right to Counsel in Evictions (S.874/H.1436) These bills are crucial to address the affordable housing gap, stop displacement, and prevent more evictions and homelessness in our communities.

We cannot afford to wait any longer for these proven solutions. Thank you for your leadership!

Your name
etc (organizational is optional; if your org is not signed on, write as an individual constituent – it’s equally powerful!)

*UPDATE: The Transfer Fee Coalition just provided a quick ACTION LINK for all to send emails to Leadership. Check it out and send!

Thanks for your action – stay tuned for the next one!
