Canvass for #YesOn10 in Milpitas
October 14, 2018 at 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
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.
This weekend, we will meet at the Milpitas Farmers’ Market, right by Chevron/McDonalds at 9.30am, where we will table until 12pm.
For those who can join us and canvass, we’ll meet at the same spot at 1pm 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.
As always, this is a newbie-friendly event!
