The demand for affordable housing is exceeding supply and discourages tenants living in substandard conditions from speaking out for fear of being quickly displaced with nowhere to go. While these tenants have limited tenant protections under Texas Law, many aren't informed of their rights and lack the resources to address their issues. By addressing their problems as a group, renters have the ability to change the power dynamic.
We dedicate our energy to empowering renters to take action through outreach, educational workshops, leadership development, and campaign planning to obtain repairs, prevent displacement, and address common problems at properties. With your contribution we can continue to support Austin renters who are improving their own communities.
