We’re taking the repeal of the Costa Hawkins Rental Housing Act to the ballot!!!

Strong Rent Control and Just Cause Eviction laws 
are the way to keep people in their homes now, while we work to get more (truly) affordable housing built.  In order to have strong Rent Control laws, we need to repeal the Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act, a state law which ties the hands of local government. Costa-Hawkins prevents\ cities and counties from applying rent control to apartments built after 1995 or to single-family rental units.  It also allows landlords to raise the rent as much as they want when a unit becomes vacant.

Our signature goal is 585,000 by the end of April, and well over 25% have been collected so far.  We can do this, but we need all hands on deck

  • Come out for a community kick-off event & signature gathering, followed by lunch.
  • Endorse the Affordable Housing Act & get your petitions for your organization to help repeal Costa Hawkins & allow the expansion of strong rent control.
