We are fighting evictions and we want your help!
There are many ways to get involved with RTU –
- CANVASSING WITH US – Talk to tenants about their experiences and connect them with other tenants who are excited to organize and fight for collective demands with their neighbors. This is the core of RTU’s work and how we continue to build the union.
- ORGANIZING WHERE YOU LIVE – Does your landlord leave maintenance requests unanswered? Overcharge you for rent? Want to make sure your landlord won’t start doing that? We can support you as you talk with your neighbors, get organized, and fight for them collectively.
- LETTER DELIVERY – We deliver letters to notify tenants they have an upcoming unlawful detainer case because landlords and the courts have been failing to do so. These letters are critical not only to ensure tenants make it to their hearings so they aren’t automatically evicted, but also to inform them of their rights and connect them with helpful resources.
- ADDRESS RESEARCH – Before we can deliver letters to notify tenants they have unlawful detainer cases coming up, we have to get their addresses from the courthouse computer, write them down, then digitize them so RTU can continue our work.
