We're On Rent Strike and So Can You!
As of April 1, we are on rent strike with our neighbors to demand that Governor Cuomo #CancelRent in New York, permanently house people experiencing homelessness, and reinvest in public and social housing models. We will talk about how we organized our 36-unit building before and during the COVID-19 epidemic, addressing common concerns, and inoculating against landlord retaliation, as well as answer your questions.
