Columbia Neighborhood Pledge

Home. The place where we lay our heads, hug our loved ones, and make our memories.

But today, this most basic of human needs is put out of our reach to turn a quick profit for the wealthiest 1% and ignore the needs of our neighbors and families.

We deserve – and are working for – a Columbia and City Council that works for us.

As voters, we’re coming together to demand our members of the city council lookout for us and our neighbors instead of real estate speculators, corporate developers, and landlords that fund their campaigns have handed themselves kickbacks while jacking up rents, peddling faulty mortgages, and destroying affordable options.

We are coming together to demand more for us, our families, and our communities – and no longer allow corporations to strip resources from our neighborhoods.

We need leaders who will ensure our schools and communities have the resources they need. We need leaders who will look out for the schools where our kids learn, the roads we drive on, the buses we take to work, and safe places to call home are available to all of us – no matter our skin color, zip code, or how much money we have. We are coming together to demand our city leaders put the needs of our families and neighborhoods first – not selling off our public resources to the highest bidder or otherwise lining the pockets of corporations.

Join us as we work toward our vision and ask Ward 2 and Ward 6 City Council candidates to take the Neighborhood Pledge.

We must come together to elect leaders who share our values, rewrite the rules to work for us to build and protect safe options we can actually afford, and protect and invest in our public resources to serve our communities fairly. We make the future and we can ensure all of us have a place to call home and a government that works for all of us.

Add your name to show you agree we should have a government that focuses on our families and neighborhoods first.

By adding your name, you can join our work to hold our leaders accountable, share your wishes for your community, and join together with other neighbors.

We are talking to our neighbors every week – talking and listening to the issues that matter most to our community. You can join our neighborhood outreach team and be a part of our phone banks, door-to-door (safely distanced) canvassing, and candidate forum.
