All Portland-Metro residents have the right to affordable, accessible, stable and safe housing, free from discrimination.
POLICY #2A: IMMIGRANT AND UNDOCUMENTED TENANT SANCTUARY ORDINANCE. Legislation should be enacted to make housing discrimination and/or retaliation as a consequence of immigrant, refugee or undocumented status illegal.
POLICY #2B: NO EVICTION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION. When tenants get an eviction notice, they often don’t know their rights, don’t understand the process, and cannot afford an attorney. The city/county/metro must guarantee that every tenant has an attorney in eviction in court if they want one, regardless of their ability to pay.
