CA Renter Power Statewide Assembly 2017

Start: Saturday, September 23, 2017 8:00 AM

End: Sunday, September 24, 2017 5:00 PM



California Renter Power 2017 is a statewide assembly of renters and tenant's rights organizers fighting for housing justice!

With historic fights for rent control and just cause coming from the people, we are in a movement moment. A bill to repeal Costa-Hawkins has been introduced, new local tenant protections have been passed. What many said was impossible is now possible!

This assembly is open to all tenants seeking resources to organize for housing justice in their communities and organizers looking to connect with state and local campaigns and deepen their work. Space is limited and priority will be given to tenants and tenant organizers to attend.

We believe the current system of for-profit exploitation of our communities by landlords, developers, and real-estate speculators, seen in rising rents, evictions, displacement, and homelessness, does not work for low-income people and therefore does not work for any Californians. Our collective work for housing justice is grounded in the principles of racial, economic, and gender justice. We believe an injury to one is an injury to all. We believe housing is a human right. We believe to make that a reality we must build the power of tenants and low-income people to shape their communities. This current movement is standing on the shoulders of previous tenant and housing movements in California and beyond, and we seek to learn from the past to build for the future.
