Tenant Union Near Me

What is a Tenant Union?

A tenant union is an group of tenants organized by building, neighborhood, city, or region, who work together to educate each other about their rights as tenants, to provide support for each other, and to represent our interests politically.

Some tenant unions have been involved in local political efforts to pass rent control laws.

A tenant organization can be associated with a larger group, perhaps a nonprofit or a legal clinic, or can be autonomous, not formally associated with another group, but working with other organizations as peers.
