Buscando Acción y Solidaridad Que Transforme el Arrendamiento

"What do we want? More Time! When do we want it? Now!"
Tenants at 5020 Manor Road chanted after being given 30 days to vacate following the sale of their homes.
Agreeing they needed more time, these tenants stuck together and leveraged their power with the support of BASTA, Blanton Elementary parents and students, Mayor Pro Tem Kathie Tovo, Council Member Greg Casar, and School Board Trustees Ann Teich and Ted Gordon.
BASTA is a non-profit project dedicated to helping Austin renters work together to improve the conditions of their homes and communities.
