Providence activists push for rent-control in city

Activists in Providence launched a campaign this week to put a rent-control initiative on the upcoming fall ballot. Members of Direct Action for Rights and Equality gathered Wednesday at the home of an elderly couple facing eviction to announce their effort. DARE activist Malchus Mills says the organization hopes to limit rent increases to once a year and make them subject to approval by a Providence rent control board.
