Across the U.S., rents are rising, gentrification is rampant, and displacement rates are high. Campaigns for rent control have emerged as a response to this issue, and they’re a solid step on the way to truly just housing. On this panel, housing organizers from across DSA will discuss lessons from their experiences and take on the question of how the left can use the demand for rent control today to build toward a more robust and comprehensive demand for social housing in the future.
