Momentum Continues to Build Around #YesOn10 Movement Focused on Empowering Communities, Protecting Tenants, and Addressing California’s Housing Affordability Crisis

On Friday, September 21, the Yes on 10 movement will launch a statewide “Rent Is Too Damn High” Bus Tour to communicate the importance of Proposition 10, a critical step towards solving California’s housing-affordability crisis.

The Bus Tour is a grassroots effort to further develop organic person-to-person relationships in communities across the state, hear community housing concerns, and raise awareness for Proposition 10. Leaders and organizations from up and down California will come together to engage voters and rally support for Proposition 10 because everyone deserves a safe, healthy, and affordable place to call home.
