Letters from 732,000 California Voters Ask Newsom Not to Oppose Rent Control

A broad coalition of California renters, housing advocates, elected officials, and social justice organizations will host a press conference on the West Steps of the Capitol Building in Sacramento, CA on Wednesday, October 25th in support of the ‘Justice for Renters Act,’ a statewide ballot initiative that would lift California’s rent control ban and give local communities the right to stabilize rents and make apartments more affordable for those low-income and middle-income renters. The coalition will deliver more than 732,000 letters – filling 250 boxes – to Governor Gavin Newsom asking him to support, or at least not oppose, the 2024 California rent control ballot initiative.
