California Democratic Party Convention Delegates Voted to Support Renters Unlike Our Politicians

Many California Democratic lawmakers are in the pocket of the real estate industry and regularly vote against tenants. What is increasingly clear is that the Real Estate Democrats are out of step with voters and grassroots party delegates who overwhelmingly support tenants.

 

Tenant Conventions

The free conventions from the Anti-Displacement Coalition (which includes the Tenants Union) will feature a “know your rights” training, a talk on speculation and how it leads to higher rents and evictions, ways that people can fight it and help stop evictions and displacement.

  • District 8 (Castro, Noe, Duboce, Glen Park, North Mission): Saturday, June 3, 2017. At the Women’s Building from 11am – 2pm.
  • Excelsior: June 3, 2017, 9 am-2:30 pm at Leadership High, 350 Seneca Ave.

Building Tenant Power

Since 1971, the San Francisco Tenants Union has been fighting for the rights of tenants and for the preservation of affordable housing in San Francisco. The Tenants Union is volunteer led and membership supported. Membership and counseling donations enables our advocacy to be uncompromising and not influenced by pressures from government or other funders. We are a 501(c)(4) since we campaign for political candidates. We seek to build a base of tenants throughout the city to establish a political power to create change.

Join the Tenants Union today to help support on going efforts to protect and expand affordable housing in the city. Your membership helps keep the clinic going and drives our advocacy.

Anti-Eviction Mapping Project

The Anti-Eviction Mapping Project is a data-visualization, data analysis, and digital storytelling collective documenting the dispossession of San Francisco Bay Area residents in the wake of the Tech Boom 2.0. We seek to create tools that contribute to collective resistance, and that can be used by diverse communities in movement building.

Utilizing maps and digital storytelling, we strive to make the often obscured mechanisms of material, cultural, and affective displacement palpable. We see the eviction epidemic as endemic to a political economy built to privilege corporate interests of real estate and tech, and seek to contribute to a living archive that deconstructs corporate collusion.

Drop-In Tenants’ Rights Counseling Clinic

The Tenants Union operates a volunteer counselor drop-in counseling clinic for members and nonmembers. Since the Tenants Union is a membership-supported organization, we ask that tenants become members of the Tenants Union or make a donation (but no one is turned away for lack of funds). Hours for the clinic include daytime, evening and weekend hours.
