Just Cause Eviction law gains support from Mayor Walsh

December 6, 2016

The Right to Remain coalition announced that Mayor Walsh is supporting the Jim Brook Stabilization Act that would provide new homeowner and tenant protections.

The Boston City Council is expected to hold a hearing and vote on the bill in December.

The proposed bill is named after fallen activist Jim Brooks, a long-time supporter of housing, disability, and LGBTQ rights.  Jim Brooks dedicated many of his last years trying to stop wrongful evictions and build a movement for housing justice where people come before profit.

Winning passage of the Jim Brooks Stabilization Act will make it harder for those developers who want to flip real estate with evictions while increasing rents in Boston.
