Join DSA in Berkeley to campaign for Jovanka Beckles for State Assembly District 15 and Yes on Prop 10 -- the Affordable Housing Act — a ballot initiative that that will give our cities and counties the power to adopt rent control necessary to address the state’s housing affordability crisis by repealing the Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act.
Jovanka Beckles is the former Vice Mayor of Richmond and a member of the Richmond Progressive Alliance, a grassroots coalition that doesn’t accept any corporate money. Jovanka Beckles and the RPA have won countless victories for the city’s working class, including a $15 minimum wage and more than $115M in new taxes on Chevron and their oil refinery. She is also a big proponent of Proposition 10. We’re fighting alongside Jovanka Beckles and half a million renters across the state to repeal this law and pave the way for real and fair rent control.
The Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act upholds landlord interests, and – in tandem with the housing crisis – has deeply exacerbated social disparities, displaced longtime communities, driven homelessness, and dealt a blow to working class power by making housing ever more insecure and inaccessible.
Come learn more about repealing Costa-Hawkins and then we'll hit the streets to talk with our neighbors about Jovanka Beckles and the Affordable Housing Act!
