WE DEMAND A RENT FREEZE for the 2.5 million rent stabilized tenants in this city.  For the first time in the history of NYC, a we won a RENT FREEZE in 2015 and for a second time in 2016!  Now is the time to keep the pressure up and fight for a roll back! Check the Calendar for details about the next Campaign Committee Meeting. Call Yeraldi for more info at 718-716-8000, ext. 117.

WE DEMAND AN END TO UNJUST EVICTIONS! In the last two years over 20,000 families have been evicted in the Bronx alone! We are working with the Office of Court Administration to change policies and procedures so that unrepresented tenants can better navigate the confusing and intimidating housing court process. And we are working with Council Members Gibson and Levine to pass legislation that would make NYC the first city in the country to mandate representation in housing court.  Over half of the city council members have signed on, but we have a long road ahead! Check the Calendar for details about the next Campaign Committee Meeting. Call Pablo for more info at 718-716-8000, ext. 243.
