Across the state, our communities
are watching in horror as families are pushed into homelessness at
unprecedented rates - many becoming homeless for the first time in

ACCE is ramping up our biggest campaigns yet to fight displacement,
rent gouging and unfair evictions across California - but we can’t do
it without you. Our goal is to get 300 new monthly sustainers by

California by becoming an ACCE sustainer

communities of color to the halls of power over the long haul. We CAN
prove that tenant power is stronger than the power of
