Green Sunday (7/8): Repeal the Costa-Hawkins “Anti-Rent Control” Act

The Green Party of Alameda County invites you
to a Green Sunday presentation and discussion about
This Sunday, July 8, 2018, 5:00-6:30 pm
California’s Costa-Hawkins Act, enacted in 1995 to outlaw rent control on new buildings, may be the single most important factor in making housing unaffordable in the Bay Area.
However, legislation to repeal Costa-Hawkins will be on the ballot in November.
This effort is being spearheaded by ACCE (Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment) Action . On Sunday we will have two speakers from ACCE, Lalo Colon and Grace Martinez, who will tell us about their efforts, and how we can help.
We welcome your participation!
Lalo Colon is a housing organizing for ACCE, coordinating the Bay Area work on Costa Hawkins repeal.
Grace Martinez is a San Francisco native and has been organizing in the Bay Area for over 14 years, first with ACORN then with ACCE. She has worked on several local and statewide electoral campaigns, and has spent a bulk of her organizing work on housing issues – public housing, tenants’ rights, anti displacement work, and foreclosures. She currently works statewide for ACCE, primarily supporting local offices by providing staff and leadership development trainings.
