Creating Advocacy Infrastructure to Keep Richmond Rent Control Strong and Prevent Displacement
Stable housing is an essential part of the just transition in Richmond. Richmond is composed of 48% of renters who are people of color. The fight for rent control has helped galvanize the community behind progressive leaders and community organizations. Rent control unites diverse segments of the community to make sure that the progressive gains are not lost by displacement of the grassroots base. Thousands of voters cast their ballots for rent control and it remains a defining challenge to corporate power in the city.
