Grant Awarded: $10,000
Renter's Rights is a collaborative publication between Know your City and Community Alliance of Tenants
Know your City is a non-profit organization whose mission is to connect people to place through tours, lectures, publications and youth programs. Community Alliance of Tenants is a tenant-led grassroots organization whose mission is to educate and empower Oregon tenants to demand safe, stable and affordable rental housing.
Together, they will partner together to create Renter's Rights, an educational tool for Oregon renters. The publication will be a 20-page comic book, printed in both English and Spanish, with a total print run of 3,500 copies (2,500 English, 1,000 Spanish). Renters will be able to use the book as a reference to understand the process of eviction, how some evictions are unfair and what to do if it happens to them.
