Tell Senator Rod Monroe how you feel about tenant's rights and evictions on Saturday

From Jobs with Justice:

Senator Rod Monroe is an East Portland Democrat and landlord working hard to maim or kill a pro-tenant bill --HB 2004-- that his constituents desperately need. A critical piece of the bill that *would* have made it legal for cities to implement rent stabilization (i.e. rent control), has already been removed to try to get Monroe's vote. But he still won't vote yes - he is opposed to the only other protection remaining in the bill: and end to no-cause evictions, a tool that landlords use to evade the fair housing act.

Renters need not settle for this. A large mobilization at Monroe's town hall this Saturday will show legislators that their political future depends on ensuring that HB 2004 passes, and that Oregon makes rent control legal by removing that statewide preemption against it.

We need you to tell him in person how you feel about this at his town hall this Saturday.

Sen Monroe Town Hall
Saturday June 10, 2-3:30pm
Centennial High School
3505 SE 182nd Ave.
Gresham, OR 97030

See you Saturday!
