The city council will be voting on rent freeze and eviction protections at the upcoming city council meeting on February 13th.
If it passes, this vote will implement a temporary rent freeze and eviction protections that will apply until our permanent rent control ordinance is voted on by the public this November.
For now, please plan on arriving around 6 PM at the City Council Chambers to secure seating as we won't be allowed in the room once the limited seats are full. Our item will be first on the agenda at 7 PM
This is a private event so you won't be able to share it - please invite supportive friends directly on this event page. The more bodies we have the more clearly we send a message our elected officials who are up for reelection that Santa Cruz voters show up for rent control
We have a shot at passing this desperately needed rent freeze but we need your vocal support to make it happen - the opposition is wealthy, vocal and will certainly be pressuring city council members to vote against this.
Let's come out and show that the majority of Santa Cruz voters are renters and supportive community members. The more vocal and connected we are, the more clearly we show that we are a political force to be reckoned with.
