Lift the Ban on Rent Control: MA State House Hearing + Action!

Tue, Jan 14 10:30 am - 3:30 pm

Massachusetts State House

MPORTANT: At 1pm, we’ll hold a *major rally for rent control* in front of the State House steps.

25 years ago, big real estate and their friends in the State House destroyed #rentcontrol in Massachusetts – now in 2020, our rents are WAY TOO DAMN HIGH! That’s why we need all hands on deck and feet in the street on Tuesday, January 14th to LIFT THE BAN ON RENT CONTROL in our state. It’s time to allow MA cities and towns the right to choose the protections from #eviction and #displacement that make sense for their residents.

JOIN US for a landmark State House hearing on a bill to repeal the rent control ban called “An Act enabling local options for tenant protections”, (H. 3924) sponsored by State Rep. Mike Connolly and State Representative Nika Elugardo. You can read the bill here: malegislature.gov/Bills/191/HD1100. YOUR PRESENCE will help demonstrate the groundswell of support!

IMPORTANT: At 1pm, we’ll hold a *major rally for rent control* in front of the State House steps. Please join us for the hearing and the rally if you can, and help us make history for #housingjustice in Boston and all of Massachusetts!
