2 Important Meetings on Rent Stabilization and Mitchell-Lama

(1) Join our elected officials at a rally / town hall meeting to REPEAL VACANCY DECONTROL.

That is the law that lets landlords take vacant apartments out of rent stabilization if they claim to have made improvements.

  • Wednesday, April 22nd
  • 7 - 9 PM
  • Church for All Nations, 417 W. 47th St., between 9th & 10th Aves.

(2) Come testify - or just sit there and be counted - at the NYS Assembly Housing Committee's hearing on Mitchell-Lama laws. We have to make Chairman Vito Lopez enthusiastic about the Stewart-Cousins bill, S.3326.

It is the ONLY bill that is retroactive, and therefore would protect us from "unique or peculiar" increases - and cut our legal bills!

  • Thursday, April 23rd
  • 11:30 AM through about 5:30 PM (you do not have to be there all day!)
  • 250 Broadway, 19th Floor, in the Assembly Hearing Room
Bring a photo ID to get into the building.
