Protect Public Homes

show your support

Join the campaign to protect public homes in Victoria.

In a housing crisis, we should be building more public homes – not demolishing them.

Labor is abandoning public housing in the middle of a devastating housing crisis. They’re choosing to funnel profits to private developers instead of building more public housing on public land. 

When Labor hands over public housing for private profit, it's only making the crisis worse. Already 11 public housing estates in Melbourne have been privatised, with more on the chopping block. 

Labor’s model leaves 120,000 people on the public housing wait list, while wealthy property developers make millions in profits. 

We need to keep these public homes in public hands. 

The Greens want to build 100,000 new public homes, and support public housing residents by keeping public land in public hands.  

We won't stop fighting for the Victorians that Labor's plan has failed, those struggling to pay the rent or buy a house, stuck on waitlists, or homeless.

✍️ Add your name to the campaign and, together, we can protect public homes.
