There will be a statewide ballot measure in June which would repeal rent control (for more info, see http://www.sftu.org). Defeating this measure will require hard work, which we must begin now. If we lose, hundreds of thousands could lose their homes and San Francisco would be forever changed.

On Saturday, January 19, there will be a citywide meeting of tenants and organizations to plan and initiate our campaign here in San Francisco. The convention will be at 474 Valencia from 1-4 PM. Translation services will be provided and we’re working to line up child care. We have lots of work to do—defeating this measure will largely be on the backs of tenants In San Francisco and Los Angeles so please try to come and spread the word about this important gathering.
