Organize Your building
When Renters Organize, Change Happens.
One of the greatest steps a tenant can make to create a safer stronger community is to organize with their neighbors. Oregon law protects the rights of renters to organize their neighbors and demand change from their landlords and lawmakers without fear of retaliation. Contact Us to get help organizing your building.
In Oregon, landlords cannot discriminate based on race, family status, age, source of income, sexual identity, or many other protected areas, still many landlords get away with discrimination.
No Cause Evictions and limitless rent increases make it easy for landlords to discriminate without drawing attention from the law. If you feel you have been discriminated against, contact the Fair Housing Council. It only takes one renter taking a stand to make a statement to a landlord or Property Management Company that we will not accept discrimination in our communities!
Join a tenants union
As a member of a tenants union, your voice will be essential to defining our priorities moving forward. With our voices raised together as one, we can fight to gain the rights that tenants desperately need. Currently, the Southern Oregon Tenants Union is operating largely in Jackson County, and we strongly believe in local autonomy. If you are in Jackson County join us, membership fees are optional. If you can't pay in money, simply having your support helps us to grow the movement outwards. If you can't find a union in your region, consider contacting us and we can help with the process moving forward.
