We have exciting new: Vancouver Tenants Union is starting a local chapter in Hastings Sunrise.
If you live in the area to the east of Commercial Dr all the way to Boundary and north of Broadway, you are invited to join us on Tuesday evening, Jan 29th, 6:30 to 8:30 at the VPL branch on Hastings and Slocan.
Details in Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/308670103097820/
Why Hastings Sunrise?
There is an awful number of basement suite renters and older rental buildings in this neighbourhood under the threat of reno- and demovictions. We need to organize tenants for self-advocacy and to lobby to get the policy changes that we need to protect us from these assaults of the for-profit housing market.
Ways you can help:
- Forward this email to your renter friends in Hastings Sunrise
- If you live in the area but cannot make this meeting, send us an email to be kept in the loop for future ones
- If you have ideas on how to outreach to basement suite renters, send them to us – better yet, come doorknock with us!
- If you have links to local businesses or organizations that would be friendly to VTU, let us know
Onward for more Tenant Power!
