Stand For Community


Southern Oregon Tenants Union is a tenant-led organization based in Jackson County.  We are dedicated to the fight to protect the rights of renters across Southern Oregon.  It is time for renters to stand united against displacement and the wave of profiteering which threatens our communities.  We demand sensible reform to protect the renters, people of color, and the workers of our communities.

From strikes in Chicago taking a front seat as a tactic in the civil rights movement to renters fighting to gain control of rising rents and fight gentrification throughout the country today, Tenants Unions have a rich role in the struggle for a more equitable America.  We see ourselves as part of a larger movement to curb the inequities of America's housing market.
