To know your neighbor is to keep your neighbor. Market Rate neighbors don't have a chance to stay your neighbor. Help give them that chance and help preserve affordable housing for future generations of all New Yorkers. Support, demand, and rally for the repeal of Vacancy Decontrol.

12/9: Mass Rally to Repeal Vacancy Decontrol
Mass Rally to Save Rent-Regulated Housing!
Close the Vacancy Decontrol Loophole!
Tuesday, December 9th, 6:30pm-8:30pm - 64th and C.P.W.
ST/PCV-TA endorses this event and will have a delegation. Please help make it a big one by showing up.
Join a thousand tenants and allies in demanding our state politicians end vacancy decontrol and preserve rent-regulation.
Vacancy decontrol is the greatest threat to New York's affordable housing. This winter, we can end it and save 100,000 rent regulated units on the verge of elimination.
Through vacancy decontrol, landlords can take a vacant apartment out of rent-regulation when the rent-regulated tenant vacates.
