SUPPORT Our Seniors
Many seniors live on fixed incomes and in rent controlled units. Without rent control protections, seniors would be at risk of homelessness and displacement.
SUPPORT Our Working Families
As some landlords attempt to profit from Berkeley’s high rents, families are being evicted, uprooting children from their friends, teachers, and school communities.
SUPPORT Our Disabled/ Differently Abled Community
Berkeley offers the most comprehensive wrap around services for our disabled/ differently abled community. Without a strong rent control and eviction protections ordinance, this community may be at risk of displacement.
SUPPORT Our Low-Wage Workers, Artists, and Others
Some of our most creative and generous neighbors make barely a living wage in our current economy. Berkeley should be a place they, too, can call home.
