Join us in celebrating 9 years of mobilizing tenants statewide for housing justice! With new rent control laws in Richmond and Mountain View, growing calls to repeal Costa Hawkins, and a surge in tenant activism statewide, this year we are highlighting this critical movement moment. Our work is key in resisting the Slumlord-in-Chief, Donald Trump. We need your support to build power and fight back!
