URGENT – HELP KEEP GAINS OF OAKLAND EMERGENCY HOUSING MORATORIUM
The Post Salon Community Assembly (with other local organizations) won a housing state of emergency that has lasted for the past two months. This ordinance has stopped hundreds and perhaps thousands of Oakland renters from having their rent raised above 1.7 percent (per year) and has prevented evictions without cause. The ordinance ends on July 5
Post Salon Community Assembly wants the city to take steps that will permanently protect the 60% of Oakland renters who typically earn less than $40,000 a year.

J 15, Wednesday, 9:30am – 12:30am, Air District Vote on Refinery Pollution
Air District Headquarters
375 Beale St.
Crucial Air District hearing! Right now there are no limits on Bay Area refinery emissions.
Directors will give direction to their staff on what they want included in the new Rule 12-16, which covers toxic and GHG refinery emissions.
Needed a huge turnout to encourage the Board to support our Community-Worker Proposal, which calls for enforceable, numeric caps on emissions at each refinery.
A delay is not an option. The caps need to be in place before an expected spike in tar sands comes to Bay Area refineries and before January 2017
