Bold Action for Oregon's Renters Now! Restore and Pass HB 2004

To be delivered to The Oregon State House, The Oregon State Senate, and Governor Kate Brown

Petition Statement

Oregon Democrats have stripped the tenants rights legislation, House Bill 2004, of its strongest protections after taking hundreds of thousands of dollars from the landlord lobby.

With tenants' rent money, Landlords lobbied successfully to remove the provision that would have allowed cities to enact rent stabilization, while the provision that ends no-cause evictions is now riddled with loopholes, allowing any determined landlord to completely elude all of the protections of the bill.

Oregon's deep housing crisis cannot be fixed with shallow solutions. Renters cannot simply wait for more supply; they are facing homelessness and destabilization NOW. Democrats still have time to reverse course: lift the ban on rent control and end no-cause evictions by restoring HB 2004 to its original version as introduced in the Legislature.
There are currently 481 signatures. NEW goal - We need 500 signatures!

Petition Background

The Oregon Legislature's session ends on July 10. Time is short to address Oregon’s housing crisis. The cuts to HB 2004 will leave Oregon’s renters vulnerable to huge rent increases and discriminatory evictions.

Join us June 20th at noon on the Salem Capitol steps to rally for these demands and hold Oregon Democrats accountable.
