Affordable Housing in Peril:
Will Albany Renew Expiring Rent Regs?

Thursday, April 23
Goddard Riverside Community Center
Columbus Avenue and 88th Street
Monthly Meeting starts at 7:30 PM
Panel Discussion at 8:00 PM

Nominations for CFD candidates for Delegates and Alternates in the 67th and 69th Assembly Districts to the 2015 Judicial Convention

The laws establishing ‘Rent Regs’ (Rent Stabilization and Rent Control) will expire this June. And although the affected apartments are in New York City, the state legislature holds the reins on this issue.

Come hear Sue Susman, affordable housing advocate, and Ellen Davidson, a Legal Aid attorney working on the new legislation, discuss the history, current status and outlook for ‘rent regs.’ Assemblymember Linda Rosenthal will provide an up-to-the-minute report on the proceedings in Albany, including the progress of her bill to move certain de-regulated units back into regulated status. And a report on a meeting convened to coordinate community advocacy in support of rent regs will jump-start a conversation on the big question: What Can We Do?!

Be heard! Bring your questions and comments!
