Success! Victory for Affordable Housing

Thank you to all of the ECM supporters, friends, and partners who voted NO on Question 2 ! This was an important win for affordable housing in Massachusetts.

With your help, 58% of voters chose to keep Chapter 40B, Massachusetts' Affordable Housing Law on the books. The percentage of voters (opposition was 42%) was the largest margin of any ballot campaign. Over 1.2 million voters and 80% of cities and towns affirmed their support for protecting the affordable housing law for seniors and working families in urban, suburban, and rural communities all across the state. If you'd like to see how your town voted, click here.

Episcopal City Mission is committed to continuing to build, advocate for and support the tenants of affordable housing. Please visit ECM's website to read our recently released paper: Housing: A Basic Human Right.

Please joins us in celebrating this important moment for working families, the elderly and other low income people in Massachusetts.
