Oakland tenants were severely rent-burdened before the pandemic - we can’t be expected to shoulder the economic burden of the COVID-19 shutdown. Make corporate real estate pay! After winning the strongest local eviction moratorium in the country, ACCE Oakland is organizing to pressure landlords, banks, and all levels of government to cancel rent for the COVID-19 crisis. Since the first shelter in place order, ACCE has organized dozens of Oakland buildings for a rent strike - tenants are collectively withholding rent to ensure their families can eat and access healthcare during the pandemic and to pressure landlords to negotiate for full rent forgiveness with tenants who just can’t pay.
