Join us this Sunday, August 30th @ 6pm PT, for a ‘Cancel Rent’ fundraising party via Zoom to support two working-class champions in the Bay Area who firmly believe housing is a human right: Carroll Fife and Supervisor Dean Preston.

Featuring a Q&A with both candidates, live music, comedy, prizes, and more!

The Bay Area is in an ongoing housing crisis, and COVID-19 is adding fuel to the fire. Rent is due soon, and millions of vulnerable people across America risk being thrown out of their homes. We have to protect tenants, cancel rent and mortgage obligations during the pandemic and enact policies to guarantee housing for all.

Dean won his last campaign against an incumbent opponent funded by big developers and corporate landlords — demonstrating that insurgent democratic socialist candidates can win. Now on the SF Board of Supervisors, Dean has spearheaded key housing justice victories, including passing an eviction moratorium that permanently bans landlords from evicting tenants who fail to pay rent due to the COVID-19 crisis.

Carroll is the executive director of ACCE Oakland, one of the master-minds behind Moms for Housing, and powerhouse organizer who helped pass legislation at the state and local level to build collective power for tenants. In her Oakland City Council race, Carroll is campaigning to fund services by defunding OPD and to make housing a human right for all.

We need your help to win! We don’t have big developers bankrolling our campaigns — so we rely on grassroots cash. We need you and all your friends to join us and help get these DSA candidates across the finish line!

This event is hosted by two Bay Area chapters of the Democratic Socialists of America: East Bay DSA and San Francisco DSA.
