Updates On Local SOID
Protection Advocacy Efforts
Source of Income Discrimination (SOID) is on Charlotte City Council’s agenda for February 8th, 2021!
Recommendations to address SOID was recently voted on unanimously by the City’s Great Neighborhoods Committee and will move to full city council for discussion on Monday February 8th. The recommendations aren’t enough to protect the growing number of renters in Charlotte who rely on non-wage sources of income to help with their rental expenses through COVID-19 recovery.
Please contact your City Council Representative and let them know you care about SOID!
There is still more advocacy left to be done to ensure city leadership is truly aware of SOID in Charlotte and understand its impact as a key component to Charlotte’s economic mobility predicament.
Please access our ACTION ALERT TOOL to send your pre-drafted letters to city council members and urge them to immediately vote yes on amending Charlotte’s Fair Housing Ordinance to include SOID as a protected class at the February 8th Charlotte City Council meeting.
