There are two important issues coming to Santa Barbara City Hall on April 19th.
The Santa Barbara City Council will be discussing a potential scope for a study on Rental Stabilization. We need to emphasize the urgency to speed up this process to stop the displacement of our community.
Immediately before that at 1pm, city workers in Santa Barbara are hosting a rally in front of City Hall calling on the city to pay its workers a living wage. The City passed an ordinance requiring outside contractors to be paid a living wage, yet many of its own employees earn below a living wage and are not able to live in the city where they work. Issues around wages and rents go hand in hand and we hope you will lend your voice in support of both of these issues.
If you can't make it in person to the council meeting at City Hall, join virtually via zoom by registering on the following link, and choosing to speak on Item number 15:
