Welcome to Burlington Tenants Union
Response to COVID-19
Are you worried about making rent during COVID-19? As a tenants union we are deeply concerned that tenants are going to be disproportionately impacted. Quarantine requires safe housing and the resources to stay put. We have been organizing around the clock to fight for our human right to housing, especially during this time of crisis. We pledge to strike if 1000 renters sign the pledge.
When tenants come together we are more powerful than the landlords, developers and elected officials (often made up of landlords). When we act alone, landlords almost always win. We win when we act together.
Tenant Solidarity Project
We believe all people deserve safe and dignified housing. Our campaign will organize tenants to push for universal, safe housing. We plan to mobilize people based on where they live and who their landlord’s are. We aim to give tenants the tools to self-organize for power. This is guide for tenants who can not pay rent to get organized.
