Rent regulation laws will expire on June 15th, which presents an opportunity for the state to enact new tenant protections and strengthen the laws to prevent the hemorrhage of our dwindling stock of affordable, rent-regulated units. Come and learn about rent stabilization, legislation to strengthen tenants’ rights, and how you can get involved in advocacy efforts. Panelists will also discuss the “good cause” eviction bill, which would bring statewide protections to smaller housing units by allowing only reasonable rent increases set by a local price index.

Speakers include Ellen Davidson from The Legal Aid Society, Andrea Shapiro from Metropolitan Council on Housing, and more.
