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.
CUP collaborated with grassroots organization, CAAAV, and designers IntraCollaborative to produce this Chinese and English 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.
