Let's freeze (or roll back) rents this year!

The Rent Guidelines Board (RGB) can vote to roll back or freeze rents for struggling tenants after years of increasing profits for landlords. 

Tenants demanded meetings in every borough - and we got them.  So let's fill those hearing rooms!

To register to testify in your borough, call the RGB at 212-385-2934.
