Your Call: What can tenants do to protect themselves from being evicted?


On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the rise of evictions in the Bay Area. Because home prices and rents are reaching new highs, long-time tenants are facing evictions across Northern California. Evictions in San Francisco are at their highest level since 2001, prompting the state legislature to take on the issue. What resourced do tenants have to fight evictions? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
