Rent Regulation & Us -- October 1st

The proposed Wall Street bailout needs our input: without tenant pressure, the federal government could disregard state rent laws like rent stabilization. (it did that during the previous Savings & Loan bank crisis.) So our tenants association, along with many other groups, signed onto a letter that urges any federal investment to include tenant protection.

Our tenants association has also signed onto a call for the Real Rent Reform ("R3") rally on
  • Wednesday, Oct. 1st
  • 5:30 PM
  • Harlem State Office Building (125th & Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Blvd.
The R3 campaign is working to extend and protect rent regulation - including passing a state law that would protect rent stabilized tenants from "unique or peculiar circumstances" increases.

Click here for the R3 platform. And tell any member of the Executive Committee if you can attend: We'll have posters with the name of our tenants' association!
