Candlelight Vigil

To tell Governor-elect Andrew Cuomo and our state legislators that our RENT LAWS need to be RENEWED and STRENGTHENED:

*Full Repeal of Vacancy Decontrol.
*Extend Rent Protections to all Mitchell-Lama and Section 8 buildings that leave government programs.

Monday, January 3, 2011, 6:00 pm sharp!
City Hall Steps, Manhattan

Bring signs, banners, neighbors and warm clothes!

What’s Happening? On June 15, 2011, state rent protection laws will expire, threatening the stability of NYC and suburban neighbor-hoods and putting HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of New York residents at risk of losing their homes. Join your fellow tenants and community leaders, Assembly Housing Committee chair VITO LOPEZ, and other elected officials as we call on Governor Cuomo and NYS legislators to strengthen and renew our rent laws NOW!
