Renters’ Rights Hotline Training
The Community Alliance of Tenants

By far our highest demand from tenants is seen on our Tenants’ Rights Hotline. We answer hundreds of calls a month from renters in crisis and our need for more volunteers to meet that need is ever-expanding. Hotline volunteers require a special amount of training and therefore we ask for a 6-month commitment at 4 hours per month for those willing to take on this community need.

Interested in other forms of volunteering? No worries. RSVP at our ticket link and let us know if you'd prefer one-off or shorter-term commitments.

Please note: this is the first half of a 2-part training. The second half of training will be on Saturday, July 15, 1 p.m. – 4 p.m at the same location. If you cannot make both training sessions, please make arrangements by emailing Tim@Oregoncat.org.

Renters' Rights at Jade Market
PCC SE, 2305 SE 82nd at Division

Did you know that nearly half of Asian Americans are renters?

Even though Asians have the highest levels of education and employment, homeownership levels do not represent those efforts.

Renters in the Jade District see massive amounts of rent hikes and displacement generally, and as more low-income tenants are pushed further out, they're less likely to have the protections offered exclusively within Portland city limits at this time.

Come to The Community Alliance of Tenants booth (#228) at the Jade District Night Market on August 19 and August 26 to play games, learn your rights, and meet other renters.

We'll be answering your questions, blasting sweet tunes, and serving up snacks to get you going.

Every Worker Needs A Home
Martin Luther King Statue at the Convention Center MAX Station

Did you know that 70% of fast food workers are over 20? That they rarely make enough to meet the rent or basic costs of living? That a third of those workers have at least some college education? That 1 in 4 have children at home they have to feed on their wages?

Burgerville bills itself as "fresh, local, and sustainable." In order to truly commit to that mission, its workers need to be able to making living wages.

Join The Community Alliance of Tenants and the Burgerville Workers Union, a chapter of the Portland IWW for a day of action to support workers and achieving their cost of living.

The rent is too high, and the wages are too low - and something here has got to give!

This event is part of Oregon Renter Week of Action, a part of the national Renter Week of Action & Assemblies! hosted by Homes For All / Hogares Para Todxs. #RenterWeekOfAction

Meet at the MLK statue in front of the Oregon Convention Center at 5:30 to prepare. At 6, we will march to the MLK Burgerville location.

We are the heart of Burgerville. We deserve a voice in our jobs and a raise. Because nobody should expect to live in poverty.
