document Tenants Together Report Reveals that Evictions in California are Triple Previous Estimates ca_evictions_are_fast_and_frequent.pdf_140_.jpg by Tenants Together
One statistic is always missing from any debate on California housing: the number of tenants facing eviction annually. Tenants Together, California’s statewide organization for renters’ rights, recently obtained and analyzed eviction data from the state’s Judicial Council.

A news article today from the publisher of The Santa Cruz Sentinel, The San Jose Mercury News, and many other local newspapers, speaks about the positions of gubernatorial candidates on higher education in California.
