[URGENT ACTION NEEDED] Call your state legislator to protect tenants now

Friend, we are in an urgent moment for housing. Right now, the real estate industry wants to roll back the biggest tenant protections New York has seen in decades while gutting Good Cause eviction. Our movement won historic housing reforms in 2019 to keep tenants in their ho…

A.I. and more policing won't save us

Friend – Earlier this week during the State of the State address, Governor Hochul laid out her vision for New York – a vision that aligns more with her billionaire funders than with working people. Gov. Hochul may say that New York is getting more affordable, but New Yorkers…
