Organizations that StrengthenTenants

Tenants Organize fish in purple.jpg

This is a partial list of groups that offer support to tenants and give us a stronger presence as we work together.  Contact one in your area - or city-wide.  Statewide, many groups have joined the Upstate/Downstate Housing Alliance, with its Housing Justice For All platform. 

Please contact this website if your group is working in a specific geographic area on housing and not listed here. And look for the tenant association in your building or development. If it's not there, start one!
