ACLU Forum - Rent Control

Tue, March 20, 2018

7-9 pm

Orange Grove Friends Meeting

520 East Orange Grove Blvd

Pasadena, CA 91104

Pasadena renters lack housing stability. They cannot plan for the monthly increases and typically have to relocate every three years. Many African American families and persons with disabilities are being permanently displaced out the city. Pasadena, which used to pride itself on being economically and racially diverse, is now a tale of two cities—a homogenized group of mostly white high-income residents and a group of very low income residents of color, some of whom are subsidized. Next to San Francisco, Pasadena is reported to be the most economically segregated city in California.

Against this background, three renters filed a petition to place an initiative to provide for rent control and just cause evictions protections on Pasadena’s November 2018 ballot. Supporters applaud this effort as an effective method for rendering housing costs more predictable and preserving the ability of firefighters, restaurant workers, nurses and other low and moderate income residents to remain a part of Pasadena. Detractors argue that rent control places an undue burden on one segment of the community—apartment owners—and eventually leads to decline in the quality of controlled housing.

This forum will explore the arguments for and against rent control.

Frank Broccolo is a lawyer with substantial liberal credentials who, nonetheless, has serious concerns about rent control and its implications for housing productivity.

Allison Henry is a mainstay of the movement to bring rent control and just cause eviction protections to Pasadena; she a renter who lives in fear of being displaced from Pasadena in the near future. She will report on the Pasadena campaign.

Walter Senterfitt is a seasoned tenant organizer working on the efforts to have the LA County Supervisors adopt a rent control/just cause eviction ordinance that would cover the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County. He will report on these efforts, as well as the progress towards repealing the State’s the anti-rent control law that was enacted in 1995.

Michelle White, Chair of the ACLU SoCal Pasadena/Foothills Chapter’s Economic Justice Committee, moderator.

Parking: Onsite parking limited. Park on adjacent streets or also across the street at the Baja Ranch Market, which has a large parking lot.

Cosponsors: ACLU SoCal Pasadena/Foothills Chapter • Glendale Tenants Union • LA Progressive • Pasadena Tenants Union

The event is free and open to the public.
