Campaigns

Fighting for Tenants

WE DID IT! After a swell in pandemic induced landlord harassment and after years of organizing, in 2021, Richmond passed strong tenant anti-harassment ordinances - effectively removing the financial incentive for landlords to harass tenants out of their homes as business model in an attempt to circumvent local rent control! Additionally, in Richmond-ACCE members passed a stronger Oakland-style moratorium on evictions in 2020.

Additionally, Bay Area suburbs that have yet to pass the kind of strong protections that Oakland and San Francisco have are starting to organize for stronger protections. This is no more evident than in Antioch where eviction rates have been higher than anywhere else in the entire Bay Area. That’s why in 2021, ACCE Members in Antioch started fighting to pass three policies - Rent Control, Just-Cause and Tenant Anti-Harassment ordinances, to keep housing affordable, protect us from unfair evictions and stop landlord harassment.

Progressive Governance

In 2020, ACCE and our allies with Richmond Progressive Alliance, East Bay Working Families and Lift Up Contra Costa helped elect Melvin Willis, Claudia Jimenez and Gayle McLaughlin to the Richmond City Council, Eduardo Torres to the Ambrose Park and Recreation Board, Taylor Sims to the Pittsburg School Board and Tamisha Walker to the Antioch City Council. 

Reimagining Public Safety in Contra Costa

In 2020 Contra Costa County ACCE members helped pass Measure X, a countywide sales tax that will bring in over $100 million dollars. Since then, ACCE members have been organizing for expansion of Contra Costa CARES, a youth center for East County, funds for affordable housing, and a non-police response for mental health crises.
