LA Tenants Union

LATU Responds to the COVID-19 Crisis

Can you pay rent on April 1st? What about May? Where will you get the money to pay for food, medications, necessities? What about your neighbors, your family, your friends? LATU is calling on Los Angeles tenants to choose food not rent and demand rent forgiveness for the duration of the crisis.

The L.A. Tenants Union is an autonomous, member-funded union which fights for the human right to housing. From our five years of organizing tenants against evictions and harassment, with rent strikes, direct action, and media campaigns, we know tenants need to come together, all of us, to win the rent forgiveness we need.

To keep our members safe, LATU local meetings are being held over ZOOM for the duration of the crisis. You can join a meeting of your local chapter by computer or phone.
