Santa Cruz Together is a self-organized, local, grassroots organization that formed to oppose 2018 Ballot Measure M, the Santa Cruz Rent Control and Tenant Protection act.  Our group is comprised of over 1,000 Santa Cruz citizens, including renters, homeowners, small property owners, and concerned ‘banana slugs’.  Our campaign is powered by local volunteers donating their time to defeat this destructive measure.  We understand and fear the negative community impact of this poorly written, risky and sweeping law. Measure M will not make Santa Cruz more affordable for the majority but instead lead to fewer rental properties and more owner occupied property.   Measure M is a bad public policy that makes the affordable housing shortage worse.
