Rally Against Slumlords And Unfair Rent Hikes

Written by
Join tenants at 1320 Nicholson St NW in their fight for fairness!

In 2013, their landlord, Michael Lesesne, raised the tenants’ rents by hundreds of dollars each month. The tenants objected to the rent increase and the judge ruled in their favor. However, Mr. Lesesne refuses to comply with the court order to return the money and reduce the tenants’ rents. Meanwhile, he also neglects basic maintenance on the building. But tenants aren’t backing down and they need YOUR support! Join them as they turn up the pressure on their landlord and call for stronger rights for ALL DC TENANTS!

On Wednesday, June 22 at 5:30, tenants will rally with councilmember Anita Bonds to demand justice from their landlord and call for reforms to DC’s rent control law to protect affordable housing and vulnerable tenants.

¡Únanse con los inquilinos de 1320 Nicholson St NW en la lucha para justicia! 

En 2013, el dueño, Michael Lesesne, incrementó la renta por cientos de dólares al mes. Los inquilinos objetaron y un juez decidió en su favor. Pero Sr. Lesesne rechazó bajar las rentas y regresar el dinero a los residentes. Mientras tanto, no hace el mantenimiento básico en el edificio. Pero los inquilinos no van a echarse atrás y necesitan su apoyo. Júntense con ellos para aumentar la presión en su propietario y levantar la voz para protecciones mas fuertes para todos los inquilnos del DC.
