The Berkeley Tenant Convention to choose a progressive slate for election to the Rent Stabilization Board is a unique Berkeley tradition. Every two years, numerous community leaders and tenant activists come together to create a gathering whereby tenants and their allies select the most qualified candidates to represent the progressive agenda as elected Commissioners.

Here is a little history about the convention and the affordable housing slate:
