Ashland Housing Crisis / Renter Protections Organizing Meeting
Sponsored by Southern Oregon Housing For All  (SOHFAt
Wed.   January 11   6:30 PM
Temple Emek Shalom,   1800 E. Main   Ashland
Ashland’s housing/ rental crisis continues to worsen.
  • Rent increases / evictions are growing
  • Housing cost have risen faster than any city in US.
  • Winter shelters for homeless are bulging capacity
  • Little to no action from Ashland city officials
Southern Oregon Housing for All, a collaboration that has been meeting weekly since the August Ashland Housing Forum is organizing for immediate positive solutions and effective actions.
In August we held a well attended housing forum at Ashland Library to gather and share ideas, prioritize positive solutions to our housing crisis.    Since that time the underlying problems have grown worse.   With new city council getting ready for the new year we need to be in action.
We invite you to join us on January 11 at 6:30 at Emek Shalom to review our action agenda and plan an effective campaign to council to implement real solutions
Our four priority areas for action:
  • implement new renter protections that Oregon legislature has passed for cities including 90 notice, and support ending no cause evictions
  • adequately fund Ashland’s current Housing Trust Fund which is currently not functional
  • establish full week  24/7 winter homeless shelters
  • provide land and funding for Ashland’s Tiny Home project
Please join us to help initiate our campaign for local action and building toward statewide legislation in 2017
