Measure V – Extend Eviction and Just Cause Protections for Tenants

Oakland

No matter who you are or where you come from, success in life starts at home. When we all have safe and secure places to live, parents earn more, kids learn better, health and well-being improve, our communities are strengthened, and our region has the building blocks to thrive. But right now, wealthy and powerful real estate developers and corporate landlords control the housing market in California and pour millions into each election to swing votes in their favor. They use predatory strategies to drive up their profits when ordinary working Californians can’t even afford our rent or our mortgages. This especially affects people of color, working families, seniors, and people with disabilities.

We need to help people stay in their homes. Measure V extends eviction and just cause protections to 13,000 additional renters by:

  • preventing evictions of households with children and educators during a school year
  • including those living in RVs under eviction and just cause protections
  • limiting exemptions to only the first 10 years after a new rental building is built (currently buildings
  • constructed as far back as 1994 are exempt from complying)

Vote yes on Measure V.
