Canvassing for Housing Justice in West Oakland

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, April 7, join us in the campaign for the Affordable Housing Act — a proposed 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.

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.

This canvass will be the first of many! Come learn more about repealing Costa-Hawkins, and then we'll hit the streets to talk with our neighbors about housing justice and gather signatures for the Affordable Housing Act!
