About Us

This updated version of tenantprotections.org is a collaborative project between Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE) and TechEquity Collaborative.

We are deeply grateful to the many volunteers who generously donated their skills to design, research, and build this website, and to ensure renters in California have access to reliable information about state and local rent control and eviction protection.

Thank you Emily Thai, Julie Hoxie, Jennifer Huynh, Conrad Shock and Arushi Bandi for making this website possible.

Our Mission

This site exists to provide renters in California with high quality information about their rights under both California law and local ordinances. We connect renters with local and statewide non-profits to help them deal with housing issues in their communities.

More about Our Organizations


Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE)

The Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE) Action is a grassroots, member-led, statewide community organization working with more than 15,000 members across California. ACCE is dedicated to raising the voices of everyday Californians, neighborhood by neighborhood, to fight for the policies and programs we need to improve our communities and create a brighter future.

Change from the bottom up: We take seriously our commitment to ground-up organizing to build a strong people’s movement that can create transformative community change. Our local neighborhood chapters and issue committees, led by ACCE Action member leaders, meet regularly to strategize and plan campaigns. Central to this work is the belief that there’s power in numbers and in collective action – ACCE Action members and their allies frequently “take to the streets” with rallies, town halls, and other actions to make their voices heard.

In 2019, ACCE Action worked with a coalition of partners to co-sponsor the Tenant Protection Act of 2019 (AB 1482).
