Pisgah Legal and Just Economics of WNC to Co-host Tenants’ Rights Workshops
Local renters will have the opportunity to learn about their rights in a workshop sponsored by Pisgah Legal and Just Economics of WNC.
The goal of this workshop is to educate tenants about their rights as renters in North Carolina and begin connecting tenants to resources and to each other. There will be a presentation and question-and-answer session with Pisgah Legal, followed by a discussion with Just Economics about the creation of a tenants’ network.
The purpose of having a tenants’ network is to build solidarity among tenants and between renters and the community, to organize mutual aid networks and to empower renters and community supporters to come together for projects to improve our neighborhoods. Additionally, the tenants’ network will be a way for renters to collectively advocate for public policies that favor the interests and rights of tenants and to take collective action to fight back when tenants face injustice.
There will be four opportunities to attend the workshop, with both in person and virtual options. Bilingual workshops will be announced at a later date.
