#YesOn10 Kick-off Canvass!
September 15, 2018 at 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Silicon Valley DSA is ready to launch our grassroots campaign for Proposition 10! As the housing crisis grows more severe, California renters have been fighting for rent control city by city – winning major victories like Mountain View’s Measure V along the way – but these local rent control policies are constrained by an anti-renter state law, the Costa-Hawkins Act of 1995.
Proposition 10 would repeal Costa-Hawkins and let cities cover tenants in newer apartments, duplexes, and single-family homes. It would also finally let cities protect tenants just moving in from punitive “market-rate” rents.
As socialists, we see a victory on Proposition 10 as crucial to preventing displacement, challenging the landlord class and building working-class power.
We’ve been going door-to-door in small groups over the summer to prepare for this campaign – and now we’re ready to get everyone on board and win this thing. Join us at the Northwest corner of Rengstorff Park on September 15 at noon!
