Knock Doors for Housing Justice & Yes on Prop 10 in West Oakland
August 11, 2018
The housing crisis in the Bay Area and beyond is a wholly preventable disaster, created and maintained by the notion that housing is a commodity and not a human right.
On Saturday, August 11, join us in the campaign for the Yes on Prop 10, also called the Affordable Housing Act, a ballot initiative that that will give our cities and counties the power to adopt rent control necessary to address the state's housing affordability crisis by repealing the Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act.
The Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act upholds landlord interests, and — in tandem with the housing crisis — has deeply exacerbated social disparities, displaced longtime communities, driven homelessness, and dealt a blow to working-class power by making housing ever more insecure and inaccessible.
Come learn more about Prop 10 and repealing Costa-Hawkins, and then we'll hit the streets to talk with our neighbors about housing justice and the Affordable Housing Act!
The crew from "Socialism: An American Story" will be there. We need canvassers of all levels, from very experienced to new activists, to be there to show off what an amazing crew East Bay DSA has. Even if you don't want to be a part of the documentary, all are welcome to participate.
We will be meeting within McClymonds Park. Look for the big DSA flag!
Accessibility: McClymonds Park is ADA-accessible.
