This week, we joined up with education advocates to raise our voices about the two issues that were left out of New York's budget deal: rent regulation and the millionaire's tax.
Here's a recap:
On Sunday, we had a Unity Rally on the steps of City Hall with over a dozen allied elected officials.
The next day, we marched up to the midtown office of the Real Estate Board of New York with the Rude Mechanical Orchestra in tow to demand that Steve Spinola, head of REBNY and member of the Committee to "Save" New York, stop corrupting New York State.

And on Wednesday, the Real Rent Reform campaign joined an estimated 1,500 New Yorkers in Albany to stand in solidarity with those most affected by the budget cuts -- the same students, families, and workers that need the protections of rent stabilized housing.
