Stand up for San Jose renters' rights
April 24, 2018

San Jose City Hall – Council Chambers

Next Tuesday, the San Jose City Council will vote on a series of measures that could have a huge impact on renters. Will you join us at the City Council meeting to show your support for affordable housing and renters' rights?
San Jose's rent-restricted apartments are at risk. Current policy incentivizes evictions and demolitions so that landlords can get evade rent restrictions. Join us on Tuesday as we fight to protect San Jose's existing rent-controlled apartments and ensure there is no loss of affordable housing in San Jose.
We're also fighting for new protections for San Jose renters and councilmembers will vote on banning landlords from threatening to call immigration authorities on tenants.
Together, we can help provide some stability and security for renting families in San Jose.
But the powerful landlord lobby is fighting to protect their profits – and have already sued the City Council to try to get around rent stabilization measures.
The City Council has a choice to make: stand up for renters, or cave in to landlords. Will you join us and the rest of the Silicon Valley Renters' Rights Coalition on Tuesday to encourage the Councilmembers to stand up for people rather than profits?
