Support Inclusionary Housing
From David Koppisch
I am writing to urge you to join the Philadelphia Campaign for Housing Justice's fight for real housing solutions in our city. Last year I helped launch this campaign and the coalition is now on the verge of getting historic affordable housing legislation passed.
Next Thursday, they will rally in front of City Hall and deliver thousands of signatures in support of the Inclusionary Housing ordinance - an ordinance that will dramatically increase affordable housing in Philadelphia. You can add your voice by filling out this on-line petition.
To find out more about the campaign, please visit PCHJ's website.
Stand with others for housing justice on Thursday!
