Know Your Rights: Don’t Get Evicted Release Party & Fundraiser

700 NE Dekum St

What do you do if you get evicted? The evictions process can be scary. It doesn’t have to be – and our new comic Know Your Rights: Don’t Get Evicted will help you know your legal rights as a renter!

Join Know Your City (KYC) and Community Alliance of Tenants (CAT) for a release party at Oregon Public House, a nonprofit brewpub (700 NE Dekum), Monday, March 30 from 7pm-9pm. The event will include short presentations from lead organizers KYC and CAT as well as the illustrator Becky Hawkins. Community representatives and CAT members who participated in writing the stories featured in the comic are also invited to speak. Plus, a portion of the food and drink purchases will be donated to KYC and CAT for sales during the entire day!

Know Your Rights: Don’t Get Evicted is the culmination of a year-long partnership between CAT and KYC, and contains first-hand accounts from CAT Members. Illustrator Becky Hawkins from French Toast Comix was selected from a public call to artists, due to her experience with story-telling and her accessible style. Using illustration to explain issues such as housing justice and legal processes surrounding eviction makes complex information more understandable and compelling.
