  • Rent Party! Friday June 16th6-8 PM, 633 Third Ave.

We are camping out in front of Governor Cuomo’s office to demand that he stop siding with real estate developers and start standing with New Yorkers!

For too long Governor Cuomo has been selling out tenants. He’s given a $2.4 billion tax break to developers so they can pretend to build affordable housing while in reality they kick out low and middle-income New Yorkers, who are predominantly people of color.

Governor Cuomo’s housing agenda isn’t helping tenants, it’s hurting us… and we’ve had ENOUGH. Its time to press the Governor to stand with us.

If you can join us for any part of the three day camp-out and actions listed above, contact ava@metcouncilonhousing.org, or RSVP on Facebook

RENT GUIDELINES BOARD HEARINGS THIS WEEK

Two more chances to get your voice heard by the Rent Guidelines Board (RGB)! The RGB is currently considering raising the rent to the higher end of the 1-3% increases for 1-year leases and 2-4% increases. You can help stop them by testifying and making them here that tenants need the lowest possible increase and even a rent rollback.

Join us at the lower Manhattan RGB hearing Wed June 14th anytime between 2-8pm. It will be at the US Customs House – 1 Bowling Green, Manhattan. You can let us know if you able to attend and share with your neighbors here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1299329493517578
