The Rental Housing Roundtable invites all tenants and concerned individuals to join us at the County Board of Supervisors meeting on July 7th, for the first full hearing on an ordinance that would provide tenants with greater protections. Time TBA.Who:The Rental Housing Rountable is a group of community organizations and concerned individuals working toward social justice in our community to address the lack of legal protections for Santa Barbara County renters in order to end unjust evictions and unfair treatment of tenants, increase the number of rental units available, and develop cooperative ownership.Where:Santa Barbara County Administration Building, 4th floor, 105 East Anapamu, Santa Barbara, CA. Remote location: Santa Maria Betteravia Complex, 511 E. Lakeside Parkway, Santa Maria, CA.Why:Since 2006, more than 6th mass evictions have taken place in Santa Barbara County. The negative impact on people's lives as a result of tenant displacement coupled with the court's inability to ensure justice for all parties demonstrate the absence of adequate laws in both the cities and county to ensure a consistent, fair, and respectful relationship between tenants and landlords.It is time to remedy the problem through Tenants' Rights Ordinances, which guarantees dignity and justice for both renters and landlords in our community!For more information contact the Rental Housing Roundtable at 805-882-2484.
