Keeping Alamedans in Their Homes

Connect With Us

Who We Are

Alameda Renters Coalition (ARC) is an alliance of Alameda renters, local business owners, and homeowners advocating for protections to stabilize our community and keep Alamedans in their homes

What We Do

ARC creates renter protections by passing rent control laws, educating tenants and landlords, forming alliances, and advocating for renters rights

Why Rent Control

Rent increases and no-cause evictions have reached crisis levels. Average rent has nearly doubled in the last 5 years: that is an 86% increase since 2011


This is where you can read the latest news as well as learn how you can get involved with ARC.


Meet Angela Hockabout

“Landlords love to say that it's 'just business' or it's 'the market,' but it doesn't change that landlords are making decisions that devastate families. Alameda needs stronger laws to balance the overwhelming amount of power they have so that renters can feel secure in their home.”
