Thousands of Oakland’s tenants are being intimidated by their landlords, harassed, or neglected in the landlords attempts to push them out. We have worked with Council member Dan Kalb to draft an ordinance that will stop this behavior and fine landlords that intimidate or threaten tenants, and we need your support to get the council to pass it. The Tenant Protection Ordinance (TPO) will define harassment to include 16 different methods that we have seen landlords use to push tenants out of their homes in Oakland.

But the question, as we see it, is not, “Can a dog run the City?” The question we should all ask is, “Can any individual be accountable for running the City?” Of course, the Mayor doesn’t run the City single-handedly. Nevertheless, who do we hold responsible when … Continued
