SPREAD THE WORD

We need your help to spread the word about our campaign and start a real conversation around the importance of affordable housing and restoring the integrity of the rent stabilization law in Washington, DC. 

Here are three easy ways that you can help us build momentum:


1. Follow us and join the conversation with #FairRentDC

Without your help, local authorities and policymakers may not realize the extent to which some landlords and property management companies abuse our city's rent stabilization laws.

So, first things first: Follow us on social media and use the #fairrentdc and #FightTheScam hashtag to join conversations around the importance of affordable housing and the rent stabilization program in the District of Columbia. Here's a few samples for you to use:


2. Organize your renter community for action

As part of our commitment to keep housing affordable, we've developed an 8" by 11" flyer to help you educate and mobilize your friends and neighbors about the #FairRentDC movement.

Coming soon: We're working on a toolkit with various templates and strategies needed to effectively fight back against unethical practices in buildings subject to rent control. It includes information on how to establish a tenants' association, create a strategy for dealing with management,  and mobilize the people, partners, and resources to make it all achievable.


3. Alert your City Councilmember about the scam

Without your help, your elected officials may not even realize the extent to which some landlords and property management companies abuse our city's rent stabilization laws.

You have the power to spread the word about the these "concession" scams and to engage with your City Councilmember on important housing issues. We want to make it easy for you to take action, build relationships with your representative's office, and highlight the advocacy work we are doing in the community.
