Is your rent too high? Rents are rising in Oakland, in some neighborhoods as much as 20% in one year. Rent increases are forcing Oakland tenants out of their homes.

Come to speak out about tenants rights.

The Tenant Justice Campaign is working to strengthen the Oakland Rent Law and Regulations to better protect tenants.

Proposals about reducing these landlord pass-throughs will be heard at the Community and Economic Development Committee of the Oakland City Council Tuesday, February 25, at 2 pm
