The Second Portland Renters' Assembly says
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.

These are separate events. Feel free to come to both or to just the one that makes the most sense for you! Snacks and assistance with watching your children will be available.
