The Winter Renters Assembly is hosted by the Community Alliance of Tenants organization, better known as C.A.T.
Today’s assembly is the first of many to come, with the focus being on renters rights.
They also addressed renters concerns around rent deposits, creating a building union to promote change and discussed how to support the homeless.
“I’m a strong believer in the assembly model and the idea of really coming together as a community to talk about our experiences. So I’m really extremely excited to be a part of bringing that here,” said C.A.T. regional organizer, Jesse Sharpe.
