About Us

Tenantprotections.org is a collaborative project between various California non-profits, and volunteers including: Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE), Code for San Francisco / Code For America, and TechEquity Collaborative.

We’re grateful to the many volunteers who generously donated their time and skills to ensure renters in California have access to reliable information about the Tenant Protection Act of 2019 including: Kyle Peacock, Tom Croucher, Reid Sherman, Linden Chiu, Annie Zhang, Danica Liang, Kellee Kimbro, Don Spire, and Herman Borrego. In addition, a special thank you to our volunteers who made the site available in Spanish: Luis Delgado, German Calderon, and Herman Borrego.

We'd also like to thank Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto (CLESPA) and the Legal Aid Society of San Mateo County (LASSMC) for providing their expertise to ensure that this site is accurate and reliable for tenants.

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 state-wide 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).

Code for San Francisco / Code For America

Code for America is a network of people making government work for the people, by the people, in the digital age. How do we get there? With government services that are simple, effective, and easy to use, working at scale to help all Americans, starting with the people who need them most.

Code for San Francisco is one of the Code for America Brigades focused on supporting volunteers working on civic and social problems affecting San Francisco and California.

TechEquity

TechEquity Collaborative is a non-profit organization that believes the tech industry can and should contribute to broad-based growth that benefits everyone. That instead of being a force for displacement and inequality, tech can create opportunity and widespread prosperity. TechEquity is a member-driven organization made up of individuals and companies that share our values.

We educate people in the tech sector around housing and workforce & labor issues and activate them to make change in those key areas. In 2019, TechEquity worked with a coalition of partners to co-sponsor the Tenant Protection Act of 2019 (AB 1482).
