Knock Doors for Housing Justice & Yes on Prop 10 in East Oakland
September 15, 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, September 15, join us for our first-ever housing canvass in East Oakland as we campaign for 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!
Accessibility: Elmhurst Community Prep is ADA accessible but public restrooms may be unavailable.
