SJ Council Vote: Defend Ellis Act Tenant Protections

Join PACT and other members as we hold city hall accountable and urge them not to weaken existing tenant protection laws. The current proposal would weaken the City’s new Ellis Act Ordinance to allow for more demolitions and more redevelopments of existing older buildings. It would especially target the minority and single mother households that inhabit the overwhelming majority of rent controlled housing. The Housing Department has shown that tenants in rent controlled buildings include 49% Latinos, 34% Asians, and 5% African Americans.

Communities First! County Vote to Close RHV Airport

Join the community as we tell our Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors to start prioritizing our Eastside San Jose community and consider the closure of Reid Hillview Airport to make way for better use of public land for public good! Why?

-Frequent crashes, nearly one per year, in the neighborhood, causing unease among the community

-Decades of planes using leaded gasoline causing health risks to Eastside community

-Noise pollution

-Underutilized, public land could provide more public benefit for affordable housing, parks, schools, libraries, and other community amenities
