Mass Rally to Save Rent-Stabilized Housing… Close the Vacancy Decontrol Loophole!
Tuesday, December 9th, 6:30pm-8:30pm
Join WSNA, HCC, and a thousand other tenants and allies in demanding our state politicians end vacancy decontrol and preserve rent-regulation. Vacancy decontrol is the greatest threat to New York’s affordable housing and has had the most disastrous impact on the West Side. This winter, we can end it and save 100,000 rent regulated units on the verge of elimination. Through vacancy decontrol, landlords can take a vacant apartment out of rent regulation when the rent reaches $2,000.
Location (it’s on the West Side!):
Society for Ethical Culture – 2 West 64th Street at Central Park West
1 train to 66th St; A, B, C, D to Columbus Circle
Let us know if you can attend or if you want help reaching out to your friends and neighbors. RSVP to Lucas at LShapiro@hcc-nyc.org or 212-716-1664.
