I am a greencard carrying Chinese person with a family of four. Because my husband has worked so many years in a restaurant, he now has health issues because of his blood pressure. We are peaceful, law-abiding residents. Because of landlord harassment, who has threatened us with eviction, we are fighting gentrification. We need to protect the rights of tenants! Every year the rent increases. Sometimes the landlord doesn’t turn on the heat or hot water. The landlord is trying to evict us, and we are currently in housing court. We have to work to save money for rent to pay the rent, to survive. It’s really tough on us. We are the 99%!
