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?
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!
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.
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.
The earth is sacred. We must live in balance with all of creation, using only what we need, and recognizing that there is enough for all.
We desire a moral and communal economy based on the infinite value of human beings, not material objects.
We have a moral obligation to provide equal access to affordable health care for all people.
