TONIGHT: Candlelight Vigil at City Hall for the Strengthening of Rent Stabilization Laws

Join tenants and advocates TONIGHT (Monday, January 3rd) at 6 pm on the steps of City Hall to call on Governor Cuomo and the State Legislature to strengthen and protect rent stabilization laws. Those state laws which provide for rent stabilization (for buildings built from 1974 on) and for rent control are set to expire in June 2011.  The Legislature is expected to renew these laws, but they may do so with substantial givebacks to landlords.  Tonight’s vigil will call for:

  • Full repeal of Vacancy Decontrol
  • The extending rent protections to all Mitchell-Lama and Section 8 buildings which leave govt program

Attendees will begin to gather at around 5:30 pm.  Be sure to bundle up and bring signs! The Real Rent Reform Campaign will provide hot cider. For more information, please contact Anderson Fils-Aimé at (347)392-9851 or

Happy New Year!
