Canvass for #YesOn10 in Sunnyvale

October 7, 2018 at 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Short URL: https://siliconvalleydsa.org/?p=1739

Silicon Valley DSA is continuing 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.

Join us at the north-east corner of Washington Park on Sunday, October 7 at noon!

This is a newbie-friendly event: we’ll take plenty of time to review the facts about Proposition 10 and rent control, and to practice in small groups. We’ll go door to door for about 2 hours, then come back together to debrief.

RSVP at sv-dsa.org/housing-action!
