Take 5 minutes to keep housing affordable in NY!

Can you spare 5 minutes to keep housing affordable in NY?

Governor Hochul just has until December 31st to sign  
four bills to end Frankensteining and make it easier to 
keep rent stabilized units available, and affordable at 
honest rents by known landlords.  So there's no time to lose. 

It's easy: 

1. Pick a date and time (starting Dec. 5th) : 
Just click here to choose a time convenient to you.  
(We have 5-minute slots, but the calls usually take under 2 minutes.)   

2. Call!  

Here's what you say when you call: 

Hi. I'm a New York City resident from [your neighborhood], and 
I urge Governor Hochul to make this a happy holiday for all tenants 
by signing S2980S2943S1684, and S995 now!  
These bills will keep rent stabilized apartments available and
affordable statewide at honest rents, with known landlords.  Thank you. 

3. Note on the chart who you spoke to and their response. 

It should take you roughly 5 minutes, start-to-finish!

Let's get those bills passed!
