September 18 – 24, 2017

Housing is a human right, but it won’t come without a fight!

From September 18 – 24, 2017 we’ll rise up in the largest mobilization of it’s kind for the Renters Week of Action and Assemblies. In cities, towns, and suburbs—on highways and in byways—in the heartland and on the coast—we will demonstrate to the landlords, the developers, and the government that the Renter Nation is rising. We’ll take bold action to call for:

* Universal Rent Control, a living wage and a freeze on ALL unjust evictions !
* Full funding for HUD and an end to Wall Street giveaways.
* Community control over land and housing in our communities
* The right of all tenants to organize and bargain collectively

Then, immediately following the actions, we’re planning to hold public political education events and assemblies throughout the weekend of September 22-24th to bring thousands of new renters and supporters together to learn together, envision a world without displacement and with homes for all people and to join the movement to fight for housing as a human right and community control of land & housing.
