Oregon, New York, Alameda, and Culver City have all legalized or strengthened rent control laws this year. Sacramento is poised to pass it this week. Seattle and Washington can do the same. With universal rent control, all tenants can finally be spared from the dread of a sudden dramatic rent hike.
As noted by the UC Berkeley Haas Institue in their 2018 study, rent control helps curb displacement and homelessness. There are no excuses, we need universal rent control.
That is why we are launching Rent Control Bootcamp, where tenants can learn about universal rent control and leave with tools to build the movement in their communities. Join us at an upcoming workshop and join the movement for universal rent control free of corporate loopholes!
