Your Call: How can Bay Area renters protect themselves?

Nov 16, 2015

On the November 16th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the growing number of people facing astronomical rent increases and evictions in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area.

Between 2004 and 2014, San Francisco lost 5,470 of its rent-controlled apartments. How can Bay Area renters protect themselves in the most expensive housing market in the country? And what are cities doing to protect the tenants’ rights? What’s the state of rent control in the Bay Area? Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
