TURNing UP THE HEAT ON BAD LANDLORDS
Heat Seek to raise $50,000 by June 30, 2017 to double our impact for cold New Yorkers.
This is a critical moment: after two years of pilots throughout all five boroughs, Heat Seek is ready to expand our programs to meet the need in our city. We have refined our strategies for success with lawyers, organizers, and individual tenants, and we're partnering with city officials to require temperature sensors to monitor the city's worst landlords.
We're raising $50,000 by June 30 in order to get to the next level, and we need your support!
UPDATE #1 - We've hit 15% of our goal!
UPDATE #2 - We've hit 40% of our goal!
UPDATE #3 - Thank you! With two weeks left in the campaign, we're at 63% of our goal. We're thrilled and humbled by your incredible support, and ready for the final push to 100% before June 30th!
