Fair Rents for Redwood City (formerly, Redwood City Residents for Renter Protections) has been working for over two years to curb rent increases and unjust evictions. In those two years, thousands of residents have been displaced - mostly female, heads of household with children, displaced from their families, schools, and communities. In addition, vulnerable seniors have died just weeks or months after their evictions. The economic loss to the community is evident by the Help Wanted signs and the displacement of long-time small businesses.
Because the city council has indicated it has "no appetite" for meaningful renter protections, Fair Rents for Redwood City says its time to take the movement to the next level.
Fair Rents for Redwood City's next action will be a rally on Monday, September 25th, at 6PM at the intersection of El Camino Real and Jefferson Avenue. Followed by a march to City Hall, 1017 Middlefield Road.
At City Hall we will "engage" the city council on renter protections. Show up to support your community at 6 PM for the rally or 7 PM in City Hall. Visit the "Take Action" page and join the movement!
