Sarah believes that housing should be a human right. To this end, Congress should enforce policies that help keep Americans in their homes, rather than leaving them rent-burdened or faced with foreclosure. Sarah supports extending tax benefits to working and middle-class homeowners and providing rent relief to tenants paying >30% of their income on rent and utilities. She will call for full enforcement of the Fair Housing Act and work to combat exclusionary zoning, redlining, and other discriminatory practices in the homeownership market. She will push for policies that promote equity and wealth building through homeownership in black communities, including reparations and grants for first-time homebuyers. She will work to reform federal provisions that prevent convicted drug offenders from accessing public housing. Sarah will also collaborate with HUD and the Center for Housing and Health to fight chronic homelessness by expanding access to permanent, supportive housing.
