Form a tenant union

If you are a residential tenant, do you think your lease is confusing or unfair?  Are you tired of being ignored when you complain about repairs?  Do you sometimes feel powerless to change things on your own? Well then, maybe its time you take some action, “tenant action”, and form a tenant union.

Several tenants acting together are far more effective than tenants acting one at a time. This is particularly true of tenants who live in apartment buildings, even small ones. It can also be true for tenants who live in different buildings but have the same landlord.


If you would like to know whether a tenant union could help you solve your housing problems, make an appointment to attend a Tenants’ Rights Class. Invite some of your neighbors to come along.    For more information click here



Tenant Rights TURN provides free workshops and individual counseling.

Organizing Organizers meet with tenants to help form a tenant union at buildings.

Rental Assistance TURN no longer provides help with back rent and security deposits to low-income tenants. But you can get help.
