The Spanish edition of NLIHC’s Winter 2023 Tenant Talk – a semi-annual newsletter created by NLIHC to engage renters and residents in housing advocacy – is now available online! Each issue of Tenant Talk features innovative approaches to housing advocacy and highlights recent victories in housing justice around the U.S. The new winter issue, Tenant Talk: Advancing Tenant Protections: Building Tenant Power to Achieve Renter Equity (Avanzar en la Proteccion de los Inquilinos: Aumentar el poder de los inquilinos para lograr la justicia en materia de vivienda), highlights the rapid growth of tenant protections in the U.S. and the role played by tenants in the movement for tenants’ rights.
The new issue of Tenant Talk provides an overview of the latest developments regarding key tenant protections, such as the right to counsel, source-of-income protections, rent stabilization measures, “just cause” eviction legislation, and tenants’ right to organize. The publication includes articles by renters and tenant advocates, including members of NLIHC’s Tenant and Community Leader Cohort, as well as by people with lived expertise who have been impacted by tenant protection legislation. As always, the issue also gives updates on policy, racial equity, and research news. We hope this issue of Tenant Talk will be useful in the ongoing fight for equitable and permanent tenant protections.
Tenant Talk is available to all NLIHC members and partners – as well as members of the general public – for downloading from (or reading on) NLIHC’s website. You can support future editions of Tenant Talk by becoming a member of NLIHC.
Interested in learning more about tenant experiences with housing advocacy? We encourage all low-income tenants and resident leaders to join our next “Tenant Talk Live” – a webinar featuring (and for) tenant and resident leaders – on April 3 from 6 to 7 pm ET.
