Did you know that if a tenant lives in a duplex or triplex in Oakland & the owner or their relative moves into one of the units ALL of the tenants lose rent stabilization & protections from both harassment & landlords that refuse to make necessary repairs?
Do you think that the housing affordability crisis in Oakland is out of control and that all tenants in Oakland deserve strong protections against displacement, homelessness, and rent gouging?
Then come out and demand City Council close a loophole that already exempts ~3,000 units in Oakland from rent control and that threatens the future stability of thousands more.
Landlords have been turning out to protest this ordinance in mass and we have to show City Council that they must act to protect the diversity of our city.
Invite your friends! City Council especially needs to hear from tenants in 2-3 unit buildings AND from small property landlords who believe that strong renter protections keep Oakland thriving.
