Stop the "Poor Door"!

Download a petition to stop the Poor Door!

Separate doors and amenities for different classes of tenants are as abhorrent as separate water fountains. 

Our city is great because all walks of life and all social classes rub elbows daily.  We are weakened when social class and the resulting racial and ethnic segregation are imposed by short-sighted developers.

We trust and urge that the new administration, having inspired us with its promise to end the "tale of two cities," will block such segregated developments and ensure a single future for all New Yorkers.

For many of us, last month's Rent Guidelines Board final vote was hard to watch. The increase was the lowest in history - but still an increase instead of a rent freeze: 1% increase for one year renewals and 2.75% increase for two year renewals passed.  

It does show the Tenant Movement is alive and well. There's a tough fight ahead - in June of 2015, the rent laws will expire and the tenant movement has a great chance to repeal vacancy deregulation.  

Let's transform the energy directed at this year's RGB fight and direct it towards saving the rent laws!
