NYC advocates headed out to Albany to rally for tenant protections

Tenants and advocates from New York City headed out to Albany to rally for tenants’ rights.

The group will rally for greater protections for tenants who are facing rent hikes and evictions. Many of those who left New York City is with the group Make the Road New York.

“Right now, a landlord could evict you without any reason and also can raise the rent for hundreds of dollars,” Julissa Bisono from Make the Road New York told PIX11 News. “So this is why we’re going up to Albany today because we have 5 million tenants across the state who don’t have any protection.”
