Lift the Ban Retreat
January 12, 2019 @ 6:00 am - 10:00 am CST
Join Chicago DSA for an afternoon retreat to learn more about the campaign to win rent control in Illinois!
CDSA is one of more than 30 groups in the Lift the Ban Coalition, which advocates for lifting the statewide ban on rent control. We know that rent control is a necessary first step in taking back power from wealthy developers, curbing gentrification and displacement, and tackling Illinois’ housing crisis. This meeting will focus on:
-Canvassing & talking to our neighbors about rent control
-Standing up to the real estate lobby & strengthening our arguments against the opposition
-Gaining legislative support for the rent control bill
-Working with DSA chapters all across Illinois & building a statewide movement
All are welcome to attend, whether you’re brand-new to DSA or have canvassed for rent control before. This event is a great opportunity to dig deeper on the issue of rent control, learn from what we’ve accomplished so far, meet and share ideas with fellow DSA members, and strengthen your organizing skills. Snacks & drinks will be provided. See you there!
