CHI member organizations are working to "Lift the Ban" against rent control statewide. Rent Regulation is an immediate pathway to preserve affordable housing. It has been used in cities across the country to help working families afford to live where they choose, and to prevent the kind of gentrification that pushes people out of neighborhoods. Neighborhoods in cities with rent control thrive.
A topic of great concern to our member organization, rent control, until now the domain of Chicago’s far political left, could be going mainstream with two major Democratic candidates for governor endorsing the concept.
