SB 300 will also ensure that life without parole is NEVER a mandatory minimum sentence in California."

Please pass the word on! You never know who has been unable to pay rent…
Because of statewide activism and your support, the current modified state rent relief program allows eligible tenants to receive 100% of the past-due rent they owe. If you owe any back rent from March 2020 to the present, please apply as soon as you can! If your application is approved and you receive rent relief funds, your landlord cannot evict you over that rent, even after many COVID-19 tenant protections expire on October 1, 2021.
