Oregon was dealing with a housing crisis long before COVID-19 hit, and our families are experiencing more uncertainty than ever about how to keep a roof over their heads. We’re now facing a looming eviction crisis that threatens to push innumerable families out of their homes, on top of the thousands of Oregonians already living without stable housing. 

We can use this crisis to explore creative new opportunities to develop and preserve affordable homes, provide stability to renters through rent assistance, and support homeownership for working families, especially Black, Indigenous, and other people of color who have been historically excluded through unfair housing and economic policies. By bringing pragmatic solutions forward, Kayse will work to stabilize our housing market by ensuring that small landlords can continue providing decent housing to their tenants.

Kayse has been a leader in fighting to protect renters, and he will continue to fight for policies that guarantee every Oregonian is treated with dignity and has a safe, affordable place to call home.
