Act on Affordable & Rental Housing
Hosted by Sydney Alliance & Citizen Action Penrith Affordable Housing (CAPAH)
It is no secret that the people of Penrith have a powerful voice with decision makers in Sydney. Especially a year out from the next NSW election. But did you know that almost one third of people in Penrith are renters? Many more have their kids or grandkids experiencing the crisis.
Sydney’s epic affordable housing crisis is making the news every day and yet the NSW Government has little planned for affordable rental housing and have not acted to make rentals more secure for hundreds of thousands of Sydneysiders.
Over 150 citizens will be engaging their neighbours in Penrith on Saturday March 17th. Citizens will be using a survey to start intentional conversations on the issues.
Together we will gather hundreds of voices from Penrith on affordable and rental housing and send a clear message to all parties that action is needed!
