Portland Renters Assembly

Venue

Description

Please join us on April 21st and/or the 26th for the Second Portland Renters’ Assembly at Downtown and North Portland Public Libraries.

The Portland Renters Assembly is a gathering of people united by the burden of rent. This burden impacts renters, owners, and the houseless as well as the overall ecosystem of the city. The housing struggle in Portland, much like activism of our time at large, often operates in a state of emergency. There is a need to stand behind those facing foreclosure, eviction, renoviction, houselessness, and rents rising well beyond livability. It is time we stand in solidarity against the basic injustice underlying rent - the exploitation of the human need for housing. Come and share your experience as a renter or with rent-related issues, learn about the history of rent and tenant struggles, and share resources for moving forward together.

General Assembly* w/ presentations by Cameron Herrington of Living Cully & members of Socialist Alternative

There is another Portland Renters Assembly happening on April 26th, at the North Portland Library on Killingsworth. You are welcome to come to one or both. They will have different presenters, namely: General Assembly* w/ presentations by members of Portland Solidarity Network & former city council candidate, Nicholas Caleb.

Snacks and childcare will be provided on both dates.
