Dec. 9 Rally to Repeal Vacancy Decontrol

Virtually every tenant association in NYC is supporting the

RALLY TO END VACANCY DECONTROL

Tuesday, Dec. 9, 2008

6:30 - 8:30 PM

at the Society for Ethical Culture, 2 W. 64th St.


With the new State Senate term beginning in January, there is a chance to change this law. So come to the rally and tell our elected officials, who will be there listening.

This is important because under current law, every time an apartment goes vacant, the landlord can invest some money, claim he invested more, and take the apartment out of rent regulation forever.

Note that "vacancy decontrol" has nothing to do with how rich or poor the last tenant was who lived there. It is a way to reduce the number of affordable apartments in New York City for those who need them.

JOIN PRUDENCE IN THE LOBBY
BETWEEN 5:30 and 6 PM on TUES., DEC. 9th
and you can all go down to the rally together!
