Rent Control - Santa Cruz
Rent Control Study Group
Starts in summer 2017
To participate in the first Rent Control-Santa Cruz study groups, please email or call Cynthia at Santa Cruz Tenants.
Participants will have the opportunity to hear from key tenants, community organizers, educators, faith leaders, lawyers, business people, politicians, and homeowners who worked together to get rent control passed in their communities. You will hear why they chose to work on it, how they won - and what it ultimately means to different stakeholders.
We will consider how to address the unique variables of the City of Santa Cruz as we pursue ballot measures and council ordinances for tenant relief.
What kind of relief do YOU think tenants need?
We will help recruit candidates for city council who support Rent Control in Santa Cruz and support their campaigns wholeheartedly.
And for the deep thinkers - there will be opportunity to discuss how we can begin to step off the wheel that perpetuates the worldwide tradition of social status that favors property owners over renters.
The ultimate goal is to establish a broad-based political coalition that galvanizes folks into one, county-wide Santa Cruz Progressive Alliance that's In It To Win It.
