Defend the Rent Freeze!
City of Santa Cruz Refuses to Enforce New Eviction Protections and Short Term Rent Freeze
Movement for Housing Justice writes: "Renters and community - Come out to the city council meeting next Tuesday to defend the rent freeze! Right now the city isn't enforcing our badly needed short term freeze on rents and eviction protections. They expect renters to take landlords to court to enforce the law if our rents are increased unfairly or we are unjustly evicted. They say it's a budgeting issue but we know that this is an issue of priorities. Let's remind the city council that 60% percent of Santa Cruz is renters. Our housing rights are non negotiable!

"We are meeting in the courtyard at 6:30 to plan and make signs. You'll see our rent control table and big blue sign outside, and we'll meet again after public comment to discuss how best to move forward. We'll also talk about how we can support the campaign for rent control for long-term protections."

Besides mobilizing to attend the Santa Cruz city council meeting on March 27, volunteers working to get the rent control intiative on the ballot continue to organize rent control teach-ins and train community members how to gather signatures.
