Petition Reform housing and immigration system to address racial inequalities

The UK housing system upholds and perpetuates structural racism that causes health and housing inequalities for Black people. It prioritises private-sector profits over affordable housing. Right to Rent legislation allows estate agents and landlords to check the migration status of renters.

More details

We ask the reforms include:
Fund local Authorities to build more council homes to meet demand of affordable housing.
Increase Housing Benefit to cover the true cost of rent
End deportations of migrant and asylum-seeking rough sleepers.
Provide housing support for those on No recourse to public funds
End Right to Rent and scrap Section 21 eviction notices.
Enforce landlord licensing requirements to protect renters.
Prioritise strategies to bring down toxic air levels in Black communities.
