TENANT LOBBY DAY A HUGE SUCCESS!


Tenants were loud and clear on Tenant Lobby Day, thanks to everyone that helped make Tenant Lobby Day a great experience. Thanks especially to members of Association of Tenants of Lincoln TowersCommunity Voices Heard, Goddard-Riverside, Met Council on Housing, Mount Vernon Tenants United, Northwest Bronx Community and Clergy, Pratt Area Community Council, West Harlem Progressive Democrats, West Side Neighborhood Alliance, and the West Side SRO Law Project (let us know if we left out your organization)!


R3 coordinator and Met Council on Housing executive director Jaron Benjamin was on Liz Benjamin's Capital Tonight TV show and on Susan Arbetter's radio show - Capitol Pressroom - to discuss why passing a fair elections package that closes the "LLC Loophole" would
benefit tenants. You can see the full TV 
interview HERE. And an extra s
pecial thanks to Red Horse Strategies for setting it up!

If you didn't make it to Albany Wednesday, you missed a great rally with anti-fracking activists on the "Million Dollar Staircase" followed by lobbying of about 30 elected officials. Check out pictures of the rally below.

We've got to keep the momentum going, and we've got a packed calendar. We're going back up to Albany on May 29th for a Fair Elections Lobby Day, and the People's RGB on June 5th (in the Bronx) and our Campaign Launch on June 15th.
