Tonight, Oregonians came together to take a big step forward for people in our community who need access to safe, affordable housing — and we couldn’t have done it without you.
The Yes for Affordable Housing campaign was endorsed by an unprecedented coalition of more than 600 organizations, businesses, elected officials, and community leaders, along with more than 15 newspaper editorial boards. More than 250 volunteers helped us make phone calls and knock doors around the community, and hundreds more contributed to our campaign to keep our work going until the polls closed.
Tonight, by passing Measure 102 and Measure 26-199, up to 12,000 of our neighbors across Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas counties will have access to a safe, affordable place to call home. Voters joined us in sending a clear message about the kind of community we want to live in: a place where hard working people, seniors, people with disabilities, and everyone in between can afford to live and raise their family.
With your help, we have taken a big and important step forward as a community. Thank you for your incredible support. We owe it all to you.
Campaign Manager, Yes for Affordable Housing
Good job! I have visited my mom in Salem over the years, but when I got stuck there between 2015 and 2016 I really saw how that City differs from what you guys are doing. They are simply NIMBY advocates who dont really care about engaging in solutions, and i saw a lot of the shenanigans that covered up where a lot of their funds went that should have- and where they claimed- were ‘helping people get off the streets’. It was very dark.
