The housing crisis in the Bay Area and beyond is a wholly preventable disaster, created and maintained by the notion that housing is a commodity and not a human right. On Saturday, June 30, join us in the campaign for the Affordable Housing Act — a proposed ballot initiative that that will give our cities and counties the power to adopt rent control necessary to address the state’s housing affordability crisis by repealing the Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act. The Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act upholds landlord interests, and – in tandem … Continued

As we reflect on independence this month, we are reminded of all the artists who make works from scratch, highlighting those who do-it-themselves.64855
