If at first tenants don’t succeed, we Come BACK to Court!

In December, tenants came out for the first day of the lawsuit challenging Gov. Pataki’s anti-tenant changes in the Rent Stabilization Code. The changes make it easier for landlords to evict and overcharge rent-stabilized tenants, make it harder for tenants to defeat unfair rent increases, and more.

We must show the judge and our fellow New Yorkers that this issue is important to us. If we prevail in Brooklyn, the anti-tenant changes could be stopped statewide.

So once again: Join us in court!
