We're looking forward to seeing you at our Annual Meeting on Thursday, October 29! We're excited to share our plans and goals for the next year, elect Board members and celebrate our work together over dinner.
We'll also continue conversations on gentrification and displacement from the Right to Remain Assembly earlier this month, where hundreds of our members and partners in Right to the City - Boston came together to demand a Just Cause Eviction policy in Boston.
Residents shared how extreme rent increases and evictions threaten to displace low-income families and rallied for a citywide policy that would offer basic protections to tenants.
Several city councilors in attendance pledged to back a Just Cause Eviction policy in Boston. Councilors Frank Baker, Michael Flaherty, Tito Jackson, Stephen Murphy, Ayanna Pressley, Michelle Wu and Charles Yancey gave their support, along with city council candidates Andrea Campbell, Charles Clemons and Annissa Essaibi-George.
Thank you to everyone who came out to march with us, share your story and build power for our right to remain! We hope to see you at our Annual Meeting to keep this work going.
