WF33 and allies discuss next steps in rent control campaign

33rd Ward Working Families hosted a panel April 26 with our friends in the Lift the Ban Coalition and the Autonomous Tenants union to discuss how rent control works, how it fits into a vision of quality, affordable housing for all in our community, and how to pressure state and local lawmakers to pass the kind of rent control we want to see in our city.
