Howie Hawkins on Welfare & Poverty

Green Challenger


Build affordable housing & universal rent control

We are campaigning for decent homes for all. We want to build quality public housing until everyone has access to affordable housing. In the meantime, we want universal rent control to stop the evictions, displacement, and homelessness increasing all across the country.

Reintegrate urban amenities, like walkable mixed-use cities

The ecosocialist Green New Deal will rebuild and restructure our cities around egalitarian and ecological principles. Skyrocketing rents are driving working people out of their homes and communities. Sprawl development is a social and ecological disaster. Segregation by race and class has been increasing for decades, isolating the poor away from resources and opportunities and isolating the rich away in their gated communities.

We will campaign for an urban policy that will reintegrate urban amenities with the natural environment. It would promote walkable mixed-use neighborhoods, convenient and affordable mass transit, clean energy, urban agriculture, green manufacturing, and a massive public housing program that is high quality, mixed income, carbon negative, and scattered site across the city/suburbs divide. It will be a jobs program, a desegregation program, and a clean energy program as well as an affordable housing program.
