Building and Strengthening Tenant Action
Buscando Acción y Solidaridad Que Transforme el Arrendamiento
This week, we're asking Austinites:
How have you seen housing conditions impact peoples health?
Melting in the Texas summer heat with a broken AC? Share your air conditioner story with #atxrenter.
What is #ATXrenter?
Ever had a shady landlord? How about problems getting your security deposit back? What about that condition in your home you've been trying to get repaired forever? Chances are, the 55% of Austinites who rent have dealt with the same issue. To know their stories, you'd have to find and ask them individually- until now.
We are launching #ATXrenter across social media channels as a platform to discuss ideas, opinions, and issues that the 55% --Austin Renters-- face. Here's how it works:
1. BASTA will ask a question about a housing issue.
2. You use #atxrenter to contribute your story.
3. We all track #atxrenter on social media to watch the conversations.
What makes Austin unaffordable? Share your perspective as an #atxrenter.
BASTA is a non-profit project dedicated to helping Austin renters work together to improve the conditions of their homes and communities.
