Following the 2008 financial crisis, many hard working families were forced from home ownership to becoming permanent renters. Now, the same interests who profited from predatory lending are now predatory landlords. ACCE is leading the fight in San Diego against the corporate landlords and investors who are at the heart of the housing crisis in California. Through targeted, direct actions against landlords and management companies ACCE members are winning repairs to ill-maintained buildings and stopping arbitrary rent increases that affect the hard working families in the neighborhoods where we organize. ACCE is also fighting for long-term solutions to the housing crisis in San Diego by advocating for stronger tenant protections, anti-displacement measures, protections for immigrants and robust services and legal resources for all communities.
