Collective action, or organizing, is when you combine your efforts with your neighbors, family or friends, for a common set of goals. All of the information in this booklet can be used by individuals to enforce their rights as tenants. However, you can also take these actions collectively as a way to build greater power while protecting your home.
Working with your neighbors helps you improve your situation in a number of ways. Working together with other tenants makes you a stronger force when standing up to your landlord and getting your needs met. Organizing into a group can give you greater protection from retaliation.
Attend one of our tenant rights workshops to get more info and help with your case.
