support

These are our ideas on how we can support each other. This page may change over time as we find our feet and each other. Check back frequently or stay in touch through email. We're not going anywhere.

If you can afford it, set aside some or all of the money you would normally spend on rent. If you or anyone you know faces retaliation from your landlord or bank, get in touch. We'll do our best to mobilize support. This might include financial assistance on a case by case basis. We don't have funding, but if we're organized we can support each other. We can also offer other forms of support besides money.

If an eviction suit is brought against you we can mobilize our network to show up in court. Most eviction proceedings are uncontested. Having a large crowd of supporters show up to your court date could help influence an outcome that is in your favor.

For now, the courts have instructed the sheriff's office NOT to deliver notices of eviction proceedings. This means that a landlord could initiate an eviction but that a tenant would not find out about it until the court order is lifted. We can help you look up your personal information to see if a suit has been brought against you.

If you're planning to go on strike, get in touch. The bigger our network, the more support we can offer. Become your own best friend by spreading the strike to as many other people as possible. Talk to your neighbors and other tenants with the same landlord. Spread the word. The rent strike is on!
