- Protests against the landlord of the Washington 16
- 16 tenants from 278 E. Washington were evicted from their homes from Richard Byrd and Jeff Lee to make room for renovations and sky high rents. Many had lived in Pasadena for decades and were kicked out for developer profits.
- Launching a campaign to get rent control and just cause for evictions in Pasadena
- We believe everyone has a right to a safe and stable home, and the people of Pasadena will never have stable homes until we have protections from evictions without "just cause" and a protection from arbitrary rent increases which become can evictions in practice. This campaign that we are a part of would tie rent increases to inflation, and require landlords to show "cause" to evict tenants (e.g. violating terms of the lease, or nonpayment of rent). More coverage of the campaign.
