R3 Campaign heating up - March 17,21, 24,27, 2011


The R3 campaign is heating up as we try to push Governor Cuomo to include rent regulation in the budget, which is due on April 1. Tenants are demanding stronger rent laws now!

How you can help:

1. Pass out flyers in your building or neighborhood asking people to call Cuomo. Pick up flyers at Tenants & Neighbors (236 W 27th St, 4th Fl).
2. Call Governor Cuomo at 212-681-4580 and ask him to support the renewal and strengthening of the rent laws in the budget, specifically the repeal of vacancy destablization.
3. Come to Albany! We are arranging daily mobilizations. Contact realrentreform@gmail.com for more information.
4. Come out for an R3 event!
