Help Strengthen NYC’s Rent Laws
Two decades of weak rent laws have led to the loss of 250,000 rent-regulated apartments in NYC, and New Yorkers are facing an affordable housing crisis that is pushing too many of us out of our neighborhoods. CUNY faculty and staff who have gone five years without at a contractual raise are struggling to stay in their homes. Labor unions, community organizations, and NYC Democrats in the Legislature are pushing to extend and strengthen New York’s rent laws still covering more than one million homes before they expire on June 15. Together, we’re taking the fight to Albany for the #TenantTakeOver lobby day on Tuesday, June 9. PSC members will be there; to get a seat on the bus, fill out this web form. Saving these homes and keeping them affordable is a real way to help mitigate New York’s rising cost of living and protect the value of CUNY salaries. It’s time for our legislators to stand with tenants, not greedy landlords. Take the bus to Albany, and send our politicians a strong message. Click here to RSVP for a bus.
