We need real solutions, not the same poorly written initiative on the ballot year after year.

Quote Title Goes Here

“[Prop 21] will only further 
the economic pain created by COVID-19 that is hurting working families across the state, including the men and women of the building trades. It will stifle housing construction and increase housing costs while killing thousands of good-paying union jobs our economy needs to emerge from this unprecedented crisis.”
Robbie Hunter
President of the State Building and Construction Trades Council of California

Deeper Hole

California is in a deep hole with the shortage of affordable housing. It's why it costs so much to live here. Prop 21 digs an even deeper hole.

Prop 21 stops new housing construction, could raise rents up to 15% and makes it harder to find a place to live. And Prop 21 hurts renters and has no protection for veterans or seniors and no plan to create the affordable housing we need.

If you're in a hole, stop digging. Vote No on 21.

$500 Million
