Sign the Petition for Stronger Rent Laws!

SIGN and SHARE : Bit.ly/RentRegsWork
With the rent laws expiring this year, it is vital that we let our lawmakers in Albany know that we need stronger laws to protect and preserve affordable housing. Stronger rent laws are an urgent civil rights and social justice issue for communities of color in New York City and the surrounding suburban counties. Too many black and brown tenants are at risk. We have already lost hundreds of thousands of rent stabilized and rent controlled units due to weak regulations -- we cannot afford to lose one more.
Recently, the new Speaker of the Assembly, Carl Heastie, said that passing stronger rent laws is his #1 Priority this year! That’s good news, but we need to let him know that we’re counting on him to fight for us.
