EBRHA Legal Fund
Fundraising Information & Upcoming Events
Welcome to the EBRHA Legal Fund Fundraising page. This past year, we witnessed a historic moment this year as the housing provider community, led by EBRHA, took a stand to end draconian and unconstitutional eviction moratoriums in Alameda County. Our efforts not only made national headlines but also shifted the narrative as public opinion recognized the unprecedented challenges and unfair policies that were put on rental housing providers.
THE FIGHT ISN'T OVER
While the eviction moratoriums are over, there are new battles on the horizon that threaten our investments and livelihoods.
These challenges include:
- The restoration of hundreds of millions of dollars in back rent to owners
- Tenant Opportunity to Purchase Act (TOPA) legislation
- Aggressive renter protection laws
- Organized malfeasance by renter activists, who often use our own taxpayer dollars against us.
To continue our success and strengthen our movement, EBRHA needs to build a legal war chest to protect our members from these ongoing and persistent onslaughts. Our fundraising goal is to raise $120k by February 29. To kick things off, we are pleased to announce that we will be hosting a series of fundraising events this year and launching an online campaign to build the EBRHA Legal Fund. The second event is scheduled for Thursday, October 30th, and we hope to see you all there!
Your support is crucial in securing the future of housing providers and preserving the vital role we play in providing quality housing. An upfront investment in EBRHA’s Legal Fund ensures a preemptive defense against new taxes, fees, laws, legislation, and policies that threaten our industry – potentially costing every rental property owner thousands of dollars to operate each unit owned. Together, we can make a difference and ensure our community thrives.
