City Council proposing 18 bills to crack down on landlords



By Grace Ashford and Kim Barker
Nov. 28, 2018

EXCERPT:

The City Council speaker is introducing a raft of bills on Wednesday aimed at stopping landlords from harassing rent-regulated tenants to force them out of their apartments.

The speaker, Corey Johnson, said the package of 18 bills is intended to close loopholes and address abusive practices identified in The New York Times’s recent series, “Unsheltered,” which showed how some large landlords exploit New York’s fragmented regulatory system to push apartments out of regulation.

Noon rally 8/29: Landlords suing to gag tenant activists


COME TO A RALLY AGAINST THE LANDLORDS’ ASSAULT ON TENANT RIGHTS
Wednesday, August 29, 2018
12:00 Noon
Steps of City Hall, Lower Manhattan
Sue --
Thanks to the incredible work of tenants across this city, the powerful Rent Stabilization Association (RSA) is feeling the heat! And what does the RSA do when they want to shut people down? They file lawsuits to tie up our time and our money.

And that is just what they are doing to us. Met Council on Housing, along with Michael McKee, Tenants PAC, and the Real Rent Reform campaign, are being sued by the RSA for millions.

This means the RSA knows we are a powerful movement and that they are worried about what we can win in 2019 when the rent laws expire - just cause evictions, preferential rent reform, an end to MCIs, rent control reform. They are trying to refocus our energy on fighting this lawsuit instead of fighting for just rent laws.  

Don't let landlords silence tenants. You can do three things important things:
  1. RALLY AGAINST THE RSA’S ASSAULT ON TENANT RIGHTS
    Noon Wednesday, Aug 29 on the Steps of City Hall
  2. Donate $3 to Met Council to help keep us fighting
  3. Vote in the primaries on Thursday, Sept 13th! Find your polling location here.
You stand up to your landlord every day. Together, we can stand up to the RSA.
