Affordable Housing for All
Senator Gonzalez believes that housing is one of the largest crises of our era. As we face a global Pandemic—our largest health crisis yet—we still cannot ignore the many Californians who are in deep financial stress. Many are facing eviction, homelessness, and foreclosure, both before COVID-19 and now as we move deeper through this crisis. Lena believes strongly in tenant protections to keep people housed as well as controls on drastic rent increases that will ensure people are not priced out of our district and state.
This is why Senator Gonzalez has fought hard as a Long Beach City Councilwoman and now as your State Senator—to champion legislation that protects renters and homeowners during the Pandemic by ensuring residents are not evicted and homeowners are provided forbearance. Lena has been a tireless advocate for affordable housing—working on a Senate Working Group over this last year focussing on legislation that would require affordable projects for low income families up and down the state, addressing our state’s homelessness crisis. This is why she has been supported by CA YIMBY (Yes In My Backyard), who firmly believe in bold and creative solutions that keep every Californian in mind.
