Support affordable homeownership in California by supporting AB 1024, which removes unnecessary barriers to cooperative ownership of land and homes. Together, we request that Governor Brown sign the bill and allow cooperative ownership to grow in California!
Cooperative homeownership gathers people and resources together to create affordable, self-governed communities. Especially now, after foreclosure and debt have put homeownership out of reach for many Americans, we need to allow for collaboration and the creative use of limited resources -- and enable people to pursue affordable alternatives to the expensive housing market.
Sign this petition to tell Governor Brown that you want cooperative housing to be a viable option for everyone in California.
