Richmond Activists Wrap Up Renter Protection Signature Gathering Campaign
Just Cause Renter Protections and Rent Control Measure to Protect Richmond Renters
On June 2, the Fair and Affordable Richmond coalition submitted more than 5,000 signatures with the Richmond City Clerk to qualify the coalition’s Rent Control and Just Cause Eviction Protection ordinance for the November ballot. Members of the coalition and Richmond tenants spoke about the ordinance in front of Richmond City Hall, and how it will protect Richmond renters and the community.

The Richmond City Clerk and Contra Costa County have thirty days to determine if the Coalition has collected the 4,198 valid signatures required to qualify the ordinance for the November 2016 ballot.

Richmond City Council member Gayle McLaughlin said, “I am very proud of our volunteers who got thousands of signatures. Canvassing was a very positive experience because there is a widespread understanding that this housing crisis is out of control and needs to be addressed."
