COVID-19 Update

Who We Are

We are a citywide organization made up of ordinary tenants who are fed up with landlords and are organizing to take control of our homes. If you are interested and willing to organize with your neighbors to fight for better conditions, we would love to assist you with guidance and resources! Here is a guide to get started organizing your building to form a Tenant Council, which is the best way to build lasting power in our homes.


If you are in need of advice about how to handle a specific individual situation, let us know the details and we will do our best to advise. Our organization is run completely by volunteer tenants, so keep in mind there is only so much we’re able to take on.

Legal Aid

We are not a legal aid service. If you are looking for legal guidance, you can reach out to these resources:
