On February 14, 2011, the Los Angeles Human Right to Housing Collective stopped by L.A. City Councilman Herb Wesson’s Campaign Office to deliver a Valentine and demand that he move forward with the community’s recommendations to reform rent control in L.A

Tenants have been fighting for rent control reform for two years, since the City released a $1 million study showing that landlords benefit more than tenants under the current Rent Stabilization Ordinance. Last Spring, after failing to enact a temporary rent freeze in the midst of an economic and housing crisis, the City Council ordered the Housing, Community and Economic Development committee to prepare comprehensive reforms to the City’s Rent Stabilization Ordinance. Councilmember Wesson, as Chair of this committee, has refused to act.

Now, with another rent increase deadline looming and the CPI still zero, Wesson has not taken any action on this crucial issue in months. Instead, he is proposing another study be conducted as a mechanism to delay reform for another year or two.

Los Angeles Right to Housing Collective is a coalition of organizations from across the City of Los Angeles. Members consist of tenants, homeowners, immigrants, low income families, homeless people, seniors and youth from across Los Angeles, including East LA, Downtown, South Central, Venice, Koreatown, and Pico Union. The Collective believes that affordable, decent, safe, and sanitary housing builds stable communities and that housing must be accessible to everyone.
