JOIN RIGHT TO THE CITY PARNTERS AND ALLIES FOR
RENTER WEEK OF ACTION

“Housing is a human right. All people must have a safe, affordable, and quality housing.”

Renters are taking direct action to confront the corporate landlords, politicians and developers who are destroying our communities and fueling the housing crisis.

The majority of all renters (51%) pay an unaffordable rent. Eviction, rising rents and gentrification are racial, gender and economic violence harming our people. Entire communities and cultures are being erased by aggressive development. We’re occupying their offices, taking back our communities and escalating because this isn’t a game. We’re fighting for our lives, our communities and our futures.

SATURDAY SEPT 16, 10AM Meet at Back Bay T-station, Orange line
City-wide March on BOSTON’S WORST LANDLORD
Boston will kick off the National Renters’ Week of Action with a huge march starting in Back Bay. We’ll march to the home/office of a major corporate landlord who has been dramatically rent-hiking and evicting scores of families of color, Section 8 renters, and immigrant families throughout Boston. SHOW SOLIDARITY on the 16th and bring the spirit of change!
