Take Action! Call for Amendments to SB 35

10 07 2017

SB 35 will silence the voices of working-class communities facing potential displacement in cities like Richmond, San Pablo, East Palo Alto, Oakland, and even San Francisco and LA.

It doesn’t target NIMBYs – it targets gentrifying communities. We need a tool to encourage the housing that we need in anti-housing jurisdictions, but this isn’t it.

Ways to Take Action:

  • Sign the petition to state legislators telling them to oppose SB 35 unless amended
  • If you live in San Francisco, call Assemblymember David Chiu (916-319-2017) and urge him to oppose SB 35 unless amended in the ways called for by the statewide community coalition, Californians for Affordable Housing, including a safe harbor provision for at-risk communities.
