Amidst the calls for tenant strikes and as many as one-third of U.S. renters not paying rent this past month, Black Rose / Rosa Negra Anarchist Federation’s Quarantine Livesteam series kicked off with a panel discussion on tenant organizing in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This panel brought together tenant organizers from the the following organizations:
- Los Angeles Tenants Union
- Philadelphia Tenants Union
- Tenants and Neighborhood Councils
- Burlington Tenants Union
For resources on tenant organizing, including manuals developed by the groups in the panel, see our “Recommended Rent Strike Resources.”
For more details on the organizing methods and work of the Los Angeles Tenants Union we recommend the From Below Podcast episode “Organize Your Neighbors: The Los Angeles Tenants Union.”
We also recommend the Rebel Steps podcast episode “COVID-19 and Rent Strikes,” an introductory level audio guide with interviews on rent strike organizing that you can share with your neighbors.
