Help protect Cambridge tenants from unfair evictions

MONDAY, March 4, at 5:30 pm, Cambridge City Council will vote on a policy order — sponsored by ABC-endorsed Councillors Siddiqui, Sobrinho-Wheeler, McGovern, and Azeem — to strengthen city resources for tenants facing eviction. Those resources include access to lawyers in eviction court, mediation services, and better notice to tenants of their rights and the resources available to them.

Please show up to support this important ABC priority. Please keep your remarks brief, but here are some talking points that can help you decide what to say. If you are a Cambridge tenant or know someone who has a story to tell about an unfair eviction, please include that. But please show your support either way!

In addition, on another subject important to ABC, we encourage you to state your support for the plan to build housing in the Central Square Lots Study and encourage the maximization of the amount of housing on the proposed sites.


Sign up (starting Friday morning, March 1) to speak at Monday’s City Council meeting to share your strong support for more tenant resources. You should refer to Policy Order # 5, Tenant Protection Resources.

If you are unable to speak at the meeting, please email your strong support to the City Council — [email protected] (cc the City Manager — [email protected] and City Clerk — [email protected] and bcc us — [email protected]).

Thank you!
