Alameda Tenants Demand Protection from the City

The pitched battle over rent control and evictions will play out tonight in the small San Francisco Bay Area city of Alameda.

Tonight city staff will present proposals to protect renters rights, but tenants say the proposals do not go far enough to address the crisis that they're facing.
