Saturday: Rally for Rent Reform in Queens!



Press Conference This Thursday with NYS Senate Democrats



Show Tenants Some Love!


February Valentine's Card Campaign:

The Real Rent Reform is sending Valentine's Day cards to Sheldon Silver for supporting renewing and strengthening the rent laws now, and to Governor Cuomo to URGE him to show a little love to tenants by doing the same.

Go to to download the cards for Cuomo (4 on a page), and to for the cards for Silver. (Note: When you print out the cards for Silver, you will probably have to reverse the page orientation - despite what your printer says about 2-sided copying - to get it to come out right.) You can find and download them from that you can print out on 8.5" X 11" paper (for Silver) and card stock (for Cuomo), cut, and have tenants in your building sign.

This Thursday: Brooklyn Kick Off Rally for Rent Reform!


STRONGER RENT LAWS NOW! New York State's rent laws are set to expire on June 15, 2011. If the laws are not renewed and strengthened, tens of thousands of Brooklyn residents will potentially face extreme rent increases with NO rental protections and risk homelessness. We cannot sit back while our homes are under siege! Join us for the Brooklyn Kick off Rally for Real Rent Reform
