Join Tenants Together to work for real rent control in Berkeley

Thursday, January 11 at 8 AM – 12 PM at the California State Capitol, 1315 10th Street in Sacramento

Victory! A first vote on the bill to to repeal the state restriction on rent control – the Costa Hawkins Rental Housing Act – AB1506 – is scheduled! This was hard fought. Housing justice groups across the state have been pressuring Housing committee chair Assemblymember Chiu, lead author Assemblymember Bloom, and Assembly Speaker Rendon to bring this to a vote. Huge props to Bay Area based groups San Francisco Anti-Displacement Coalition, Housing Rights Committee of San Francisco, Tenants Together, San Francisco Tenants Union and others for bringing our demand to the doorstep of Assembly member Chiu.

Meet us in Sacramento at the state capitol on Wednesday January 11th at 8:30am in State Capitol, Room 4202 at the Assembly Housing and Community Development Committee meeting. It’s important to get their before early so we can get seats in the hearing room. Stay tuned for lobby days prior to the vote!
