What is a tenant organization?
A tenant organization (also called a tenant union) is what it sounds like - tenants coming together to fight for their own collective interests. Similar to a labor union, tenant unions are made up of renters who unite to increase their bargaining power. A tenants union might unite an entire city, a neighborhood, a specific landlord’s properties, or even a single apartment building. By putting their strengths together, tenant organizations put power into the hands of renters, allowing tenants to fight (and win!) against the greed of landlords.
