On September 22nd, 2016, join San Francisco housing groups in the National Renters Day of Action to declare a Renter State of Emergency and take to the streets to demand an end to rising rents, evictions and gentrification!
Now more than ever housing is unaffordable for millions of people. Rents nationwide are higher than they have been in history, evictions are at epidemic levels! Our communities can’t wait for affordable housing anymore. Working-class people, low-income, communities of color, immigrants and formerly incarcerated folks are bearing the brunt of this crisis as housing become even more unattainable and our cultures and communities are displaced.
As more and more of us become renters, and the crisis escalates – it’s time for the #RenterNation to stand up to declare our power and fight back for our homes, our cities and our communities!
