Organizer/AuthorRobbie
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.

Rally and press conference at 1 pm on the steps in front of Oakland City Hall, 14th & Broadway

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.

Currently, landlords can pass-through to tenants expenses for capital improvements and debt service (mortgage and interest).

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
