Volunteer Help Needed! 
The Tenants Union is a volunteer based organization–we need your help to protect and expand our rights! 

Become A Tenants Union Counselor! 
Volunteer Tenant Counselors are the mainstay of the Tenants Union. The increased demand on our services caused by this continuing housing crisis means we need more and more counselors. We especially need those who can work day or weekend shifts. We provide comprehensive training and support.

Translation Help Needed! 

Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, and Russian-speakers are needed for counseling and document translation. Train to become a counselor, or help us by translating our materials.

Work on the Tenant Times

Contribute articles, photography or art to our next issue. If you would like to write an article or contribute art/photography but do not know what to make, send us an email. We'll also need help doing layout and distributing the newsletter.

Get Involved in Our Campaigns

If you appreciate Rent Control and pro-tenant legislation, get involved in our political and legislative campaigns to defend your rights and win new victories! We need your help getting the word out about events, calling members, doing voter and tenant outreach, and much more.

Data Entry Help Needed! 
We need your help today to update our database. We'll train you on our easy to use system! This data entry work is a key component of our eviction monitoring work.

Calling Artists and Designers

The Tenants Union always needs your art and graphic design contributions for flyers, the website, and other materials.
