Like air to breathe and food to eat, safe shelter is a basic human need. But this November, affordable housing options are under attack by a Denver ballot initiative that would severely limit our options to share housing costs with roommates. Together we can defeat this ballot initiative and send a strong message that we all belong in Denver. Register below to be part of this effort!

Al igual que el aire que respiramos y los alimentos que comemos, un refugio seguro es una necesidad humana básica. Este noviembre, las opciones de vivienda asequible están siendo atacadas por una iniciativa de votación de Denver que limitaría severamente nuestras opciones para compartir los costos de vivienda con los compañeros de cuarto. Juntos, podemos derrotar esta iniciativa de votación y enviar un fuerte mensaje de que todos pertenecemos a Denver. ¡Regístrese a continuación para ser parte de este esfuerzo!

OUR 2021 BALLOT PRIORITIES

Vote NO on Denver Ballot Initiative 2F


Home is the place where we lay our heads, hug our loved ones, and make our memories. But this November, affordable housing options are under attack in Denver. A special interest group is funding a ballot measure that seeks to severely limit the option to share housing costs with roommates. 


What would this ballot measure do?

  • Limit the number of unrelated adults who can legally live together to just two. This hurts intergenerational families, low-income adults, unmarried couples, students, and ANYONE seeking to share housing costs. 
  • Put zoning limitations on congregant living and residential care facilities for the elderly, unhoused, and returning citizens, making it even harder for those in need to access necessary services. 

With skyrocketing housing costs and stagnant wages, residents of Denver need all of their options open for affordable housing, including living with roommates.  From custodians to nurses to faith leaders and teachers – we make Denver a city where everyone thrives. VOTE NO on 2F!

Resources for individuals, faith leaders, and congregations

We’ve provided useful resources for our leaders when participating in election conversations online, in person, and in your faith communities.

OUR 2020 CIVIC ENGAGEMENT SEASON

Whether we are Black or white, native or newcomer, Latino or Asian, we know that, for democracy to work for all of us, it must include us all. During the 2020 Civic Engagement season, we organized with our leaders and faith leaders for fair taxes, paid family and medical leave, and to get out the vote in Colorado.


We’re so grateful for our powerful leaders, faith leaders and partner organizations. Our sustained collective efforts place us further on the path for human dignity for all Coloradans – Black, brown, white, native or newcomer – no exceptions.

OUR WORK

In such a time as this, we must think about how we support one another to organize around the changes we want to see in creating quality schools, a moral economy, accountability and voice in local and national policies, equal access to affordable health care and dismantling systems of racism and white supremacy. Please take a look at our work to become familiar with what we do.
