Rents have officially spiraled out of control, families are being displaced from CA in droves and Wall Street's new rental empire is growing at an alarming rate. That's why on July 27th, hundreds of families, workers and small landlords in several cities across the state are taking direct action by occupying corporate offices and confronting rent-gouging mega-landlords to demand a rent freeze and to call on our elected officials the repeal the statewide restriction on rent control - Costa Hawkins! We cannot wait for the market to "just build" or "trickle down" us out of this housing crisis - we need to take action now!
This action is part of the statewide coalition campaign Housing NOW! which is a broad and diverse movement of Californians combatting the affordable housing and displacement crisis caused by corporate greed. Led by tenants, our coalition also includes landlords, realtors, and dozens of community, faith and labor organizations.
