Yes on 10 Statewide Bus Tour To Stop At City Hall In San Francisco

October 1, 2018

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 1, 2018--On Tuesday, October 2nd, at 1:00 PM , the “Rent Is Too Damn High!” Bus Tour will join elected officials, housing advocates, community leaders and local residents on the steps of San Francisco’s City Hall ahead of the Board of Supervisors’ expected vote on Proposition 10.

The “Rent Is Too Damn High!” Bus Tour is a grassroots effort to further develop organic person-to-person relationships in communities across the state, hear community housing concerns and raise awareness for Proposition 10. Since launching just one week ago, the Bus Tour has rallied support for Prop 10 across Southern California, including Los Angeles, Orange County and San Bernardino. Leaders and organizations from across California are coming together to engage voters and rally support for Proposition 10 because everyone deserves a safe, healthy and affordable place to call home.

Proposition 10 is a key step towards solving California’s housing-affordability crisis as it will protect California’s renters and guarantee landlords a fair rate of return, all while laying the foundation for stronger communities. By empowering local communities to limit rent increases and curtail predatory housing practices, cities and counties will be able to create thoughtful laws to address their local housing situations.
