PACK the COUNCIL MEETING!! PACK CITY HALL!!
PASS the Jim Brooks Community Stabilization Act.
We Have the #Right2Remain!
We NEED everyone to come out to demand housing stability in Boston. And make calls NOW to City Councilors to support and vote YES! (Phone numbers below).
ARRIVE at 9:00AM to be sure that we get seats and fill the chamber and the rest of City Hall. The opposition is mobilizing too.
The Jim Brooks Stabilization Act is named after fallen activist Jim Brooks, a long-time supporter of housing, disability, and LGBTQ rights – often through civil disobedience demonstrations. Jim helped shape the intellectual conscience of a generation of Boston advocacy organizations. He had a big influence on many in terms of not only disability politics but politics in general. As an avid political strategist and a radical theoretician, Jim dedicated many of his last years trying to stop wrongful evictions and build a housing justice movement where people come before profit.
We stand proud as a community of supporters, allies and organizations from across the city to support passage of the Jim Brooks Stabilization Act. This proposal will provide a real solution now for stabilizing some of the most vulnerable residents in Boston and provide accountability for developers who are flipping our neighborhoods with no-fault evictions and increasing rents in Boston.
*We need housing stability and development without displacement.
*We need accountability for developers who are flipping our neighborhoods with no-fault evictions and increasing rents.
*We want real solutions for stabilizing the rent in Boston, so that city can maintain its rich socioeconomic, cultural, and racial diversity.
