Every day, Oregon residents are turned out of their homes without cause.  Good tenants who pay their rent on time, care for their homes, and have never broken a single rule are told they have to leave, and never given a reason why. No-Cause Evictions lead to thousands of families being displaced every year, and tenants know they must organize and fight back to stay in their homes and lead normal lives. These are the stories of those few who, when challenged, speak up.
