Dear Ally of the Detroit Tenants Association,
Detroit tenants, along with tenants in many other communities across the nation, are struggling with multiple housing crises including evictions, unaffordable rents, abusive landlords, homelessness, and gentrification.
Now is the time for tenants and our allies to build collective power city-wide to demand stronger protections, more resources, and abundant safe and affordable housing. DTA is a newly-formed tenant union organizing for systemic change and advocating for tenants rights.
Join the DTA on 1/10/23 at the Laborers’ Local Union 1191 headquarters for the very first Detroit Tenants Association General Assembly meeting where we will connect with our allies, recruit new members, share what we’ve been up to, and discuss where we go from here!
“Detroit Tenants Association is a citywide organization created by tenants in solidarity, fighting for our rights, for fair legislation, and for safe, real affordable housing for all renters across the city of Detroit. We are led by tenants and supported by allies in our mission to empower tenants through advocacy, unity, education and direct collective action.” – DTA
Join us as an ally at the DTA General Assembly meeting that will take place at 5:30pm on January 10 2023 at the Laborers’ International Union, located at 2161 W Grand Blvd, Detroit, MI 48208.
