Right now we are focused on calling on Governor Cuomo to #CancelRent in New York State. Here are 4 actions you can take to support this campaign: 

  1. Sign our petition to Governor Cuomo. The Governor has all the power in New York State right now. He has already taken action to waive mortgage payments for homeowners. Sign our petition to make sure he takes action to waive rents for renters and immediately rehouse 92,000 homeless New Yorkers.

  2. Call Governor Cuomo. Call the Governor and demand that he #CancelRent. Here’s all the info you need to make the call!

  3. Share that you took action on social media. Post our petition using any of the sample tweets and graphics in this social media toolkit. Tag 10 friends or organizations and ask them to do the same.

  4. Share your story. Go to and share your COVID-19 housing story with us. By sharing our stories, we are raising our collective voices to demand that Governor Cuomo listen to renters. We’re putting a human face on the crisis and reminding each other that even while we are socially distancing, we are not alone!
