California Apartment Association Stalking the Tenants' Rights Movement
CAA Opposes Rent Controls in Oakland, Alameda, San Jose, Mountain View, and Other Cities
The California Apartment Association (CAA) has been meddling in the affairs of city after city in Northern California in an effort to stop any and all renter protections being promoted by renters, tenant activists, and their supporters. On March 3, the same day that Oakland tenant activists filed a ballot initiative to strengthen renter protections called the Renters Upgrade, the California Apartment Association announced that they were keeping an eye on things, and are coming up with their own plan to counter the tenants' movement efforts, including in Richmond, and Alameda.
