Rent stabilization is a law that makes housing more affordable to thousands of New Yorkers by limiting how often and how much rent can go up. But tenants don’t always know their rights, and are sometimes afraid to demand them. In neighborhoods like Chinatown and the Lower East Side, landlords eager to cash in on increasing property values often pressure tenants to move out, and harass them to make it difficult for them to stay.
Rent Regulation Rights – Spanish Edition is based on a collaboration of CUP, with grassroots organization, CAAAV, and designers IntraCollaborative that produced a Chinese and English version of the poster helping tenants understand rent stabilization law and their rights as tenants. The poster provides information on how to challenge harassment and other illegal practices, and how tenants can organize collectively to be able to stay in their homes affordably.
