With the tech-driven spike in housing costs, evictions and displacement, JwJ supports the multi-faceted struggle to protect tenants, working class communities and the soul of our city.
JwJ is currently leading an effort to introduce a San Francisco tax measure to the November 2016 ballot that will make big tech corporations pay their fair share to fix the housing crisis. Revenue from the measure would go to programs addressing housing and homelessness.
JwJ has engaged labor unions in a Citywide Tenant Convention and in ongoing campaigns to stop evictions and displacement. JwJ lead an effort to develop know your rights curriculum for union members to protect their rights as tenants and get involved in the bigger fight for tenants rights. JwJ also coordinates with community and labor organizations to hold the high tech industry accountable for their impacts on communities and workers.
