Show your support for rent regulation at a rally tomorrow night

This spring, the laws that regulate how much landlords can raise rents for more than 1 million apartments citywide are set to expire, putting at risk NYC's most important stock of stable, affordable rental housing for low-income, working-class, and middle-class families.

Last time the laws were renewed, the real estate lobby won a wide array of loopholes (with innocuous-sounding names like "vacancy decontrol"), which have led to tens of thousands of evictions, and the loss of hundreds of thousands of units of affordable rental housing. So this year, Albany must not only renew the laws, it must strengthen them.

Tomorrow night, the main group fighting against rent regulation, the “Rent Stabilization Association” (another misleading name) is having a town hall meeting in the heart of Park Slope. This is a great opportunity to make our voices heard and let the landlords and property owners know that New Yorkers want to see these rent regulations and tenant protections extended and strengthened.

Please join me for a rally outside the meeting tomorrow (Wednesday) night:

  • When: Wednesday, March 23, 5:30-7 p.m.
  • Where: 53 Prospect Park West, Brooklyn

You can also let the governor know how you feel directly at his website.
