Tenant Organizing For Housing Justice

Contra Costa ACCE organizes tenants in Richmond, Antioch, Pittsburg, and San Pablo to fight for Housing Justice! In 2023 Antioch ACCE members celebrated when the Antioch City Council passed a Tenant Anti-Harassment Ordinance and in the previous year they passed a strong rent control policy. In Richmond, tenants are pushing to update the city’s code enforcement policy to ensure that landlords make repairs in a timely manner and that they are held accountable. Members in Richmond have also won an equitable public lands policy designed so that public lands are put in the hands of local land trusts and are used for permanent affordable housing. We continue to organize across the county - particularly in San Pablo and Pittsburg where we are fighting to win rent control, just cause for evictions and a tenant anti-harassment policy!
