National Webinar Call — Victories 2015: A Resurgence of the Housing Justice Movement

From our friends at Right to the City:

Communities of color are fighting back, facing record displacement and exorbitant, ever rising rents.  Housing victories have been won in San Diego, Santa Fe, Richmond CA, New York and beyond!  They include:  Rent Control, Renters Bill of Rights, Just Cause Eviction, Historic Rent Freeze and Code Enforcement.

Growing Our Movement

The time is ripe to build on our momentum, expand our organizing to new cities and keep winning.  Right to the City’s Homes For All campaign is in 26 cities, 18 states, and all regions of the country.  Homes For All partners led or participated in each of these victories.
