CAT is a tenant membership organization. Low-income tenants – predominantly low-wage workers, families with children, people living with disabilities, seniors, and people of color – are CAT’s primary membership base. CAT is building a strong housing justice movement that is led and directed by those who are most impacted by Oregon’s affordable housing crisis – low-income renters.

There are some cases, however, in which a landlord cannot terminate a rental agreement without cause. A landlord cannot terminate a rental agreement if:
The landlord is retaliating against a tenant for making a request for repairs or other complaint related to the tenancy
The landlord has a discriminatory reason for terminating the tenancy
The landlord has failed to give sufficient notice of the intent to terminate the tenancy (often a landlord will only give 30 days’ notice even if a tenant has lived in the unit for more than a year).
