In 2018, Jane Addams Senior Caucus voted to join the Lift the Ban Coalition and put our energy towards making rent control a reality in Illinois.

Seniors throughout the Chicago area are struggling to keep up with rent increases on a fixed income, being displaced from neighborhoods they’ve known all their lives, and unable to afford housing in their own communities. For seniors to be able to age in place with dignity, we need limits on how much landlords can raise the rent - so we’re fighting for rent control, starting with winning a referendum on the 49th ward ballot in November.
