Tenants from Upstate and Downstate New York State are fighting back!


For the last seven years, Governor Andrew Cuomo has failed to address the housing and homeless crisis. Evictions and homelessness are at record highs. The crisis is not confined to New York City -- tenants from Brooklyn to Buffalo are feeling the crunch.

It is a clear result of public policy. Cuomo has failed to strengthen tenant protections or invest in public and supportive housing. Instead he has rewarded his billionaire real estate donors.

This is #CuomosHousingCrisis,and it’s time for him to answer to tenants, the homeless, and low-income New Yorkers.

Tenants from Upstate and Downstate New York State are fighting back. Join us!

On January 3rd, Cuomo will deliverhis seventh State of the State address. For the last week the Governor has unveiled separate pieces of his 2018 legislative priorities. But despite the fact that there are over 88,000 homeless New Yorkers, housing is noticeably absent. This is unconscionable.

Tenants and homeless people are travelling from all over the state to Albany to protest Cuomo’s 2018 State of the State address.

Meet us at 10:30 at Emmanuel Baptist Church to hear directly from people affected by #CuomosHousingCrisis.

Then, we’ll march to the Capitol Building and make sure that Cuomo and his real estate guests hear tenants’ cries for stronger rent laws and a true investment in public and supportive housing in the 2018 budget.

What: Rally and protest against Cuomo’s 2018 State of the State

When: January 3rd, 2018. 10:00 AM

Where: Meet up at Emmanuel Baptist Church, 275 State Street, Albany NY. From there we will march at 11:00 AM to the State Capitol building.
