CAUSE and Santa Barbara Public Library to Host Foro Inquilino / Tenant's Forum

On Wednesday, September 5, Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy (CAUSE), in partnership with the Central Library, is hosting a Foro Inquilino/Tenant's Forum. From 6:00 - 8:00 PM in the Central Library's Faulkner Gallery, the community is invited to express their concerns and needs as tenants in the City of Santa Barbara.

City Council members will be present at the event to listen to community concerns. In addition, attendees will learn how to advocate to city and state governments to pass protections for tenants' rights. This includes protections against unjust evictions, safe living conditions, and information on Proposition 10, which will restore the right of local communities to protect renters from unfair rent increases. 

The event will be in Spanish, and interpreted to English.

Ven a expresar tus necesidades como inquilino. Habrán miembros del concilio presentes para escuchar tu voz. Aprende como exigirle a la ciudad y al gobierno estatal en que mejoren las protecciones que merecen los inquilinos de Santa Barbara. Esto incluye protecciones contra los desalojos injustos, viviendas saludables, y apoyo a la Proposición 10 que restablece el derecho de nuestras comunidades locales a proteger a los inquilinos contra aumentos de renta drásticos. 

El evento sera en español, con el interpretación al ingles.
