THE SUMMER HEAT IS HERE


Dear LD2 North Phoenix DEMs and Friends,


We hope this newsletter finds you well as we unite again to address one of the most pressing issues in our community: homelessness. With summer upon us, the soaring temperatures reaching triple digits pose a life-threatening situation for many in our community.


The increasing numbers of people experiencing homelessness necessitate immediate attention, support, and action. As Democrats, we believe everyone deserves a secure, safe, and dignified place to live.


Sarah Ligouri, a dedicated political activist and former AZ House Representative committed to addressing the housing crisis in Phoenix, aptly describes the current situation as a "tsunami." She highlights the convergence of economic pressures, high-interest rates, and a shortage of available housing as contributing factors.


Ligouri emphasizes several factors that will play a mission-critical role in overcoming one of the most significant challenges in our city today:


  • Eviction prevention
  • Regulatory reform
  • Innovative approaches to construction
  • Community support
  • Diversified funding sources
  • Expanding housing supply


During the recent LD2 Monthly Meeting, Rep. Ligouri recommended a valuable resource for those interested in learning more: Gregg Colburn's book, Homelessness Is a Housing Problem: How Structural Factors Explain U.S. Patterns.


Our success lies not solely in the efforts of a few but in the collective dedication of our Democratic community. The most effective way to address this problem is by electing legislators like Rep. Schwiebert, who possess the leadership skills and political willpower necessary to enact change.


Let's make it happen in 2024.


In solidarity,



Meg Patel, Ed.D.

LD2 North Phoenix DEMs, Chair

DONATE TO LD2 AND WIN A GIFT CARD!


If you’re reading this newsletter, you know the importance of voting in all elections and understand the process. However, not all of our LD2 neighbors do, so one of the uses of our funds is for the purpose of creating literature and mailers to help educate the voters of LD2 about the importance of elections – especially down ballot local races. Consider becoming a recurring donor to LD2 and you will be automatically entered to win a gift card for your recurring donation! 


Anyone can donate - you don’t have to live in LD2.
