The rent is too damn high. Landlords have the mostly unchecked power to kick us out of our homes for no reason at all. People of color still face discrimination when looking for housing on top of being displaced by market forces. Renters and allies in the struggle for housing as a human right, it’s time to put our heads together and build solidarity! It’s time for another installment of the Portland Renters Assembly.
Join us for one or both assemblies. There will be speakers on race and gentrification at the first, and organizing across the community at the second. Individuals will be able to tell their stories of abuse, exploitation, and displacement at the hands of landlords, developers and the housing market. There will also be hope, and to that end time for group discussion about organizing for power in our communities, building tenant unions, housing as a human right, and more. Snacks and on-site childcare will be provided.
