How Tenants Together volunteers support California renters?

Tenants Together volunteers have supported over 3,500 tenants to fight for their rights. We are all connecting remotely, so access to computer and internet are required to participate. All interested must complete Volunteer Training: Tenant Rights Series from 6:00-8:00pm on Tuesday July 26 + Thursday July 28

We have four different volunteer teams to join!

Hotline Team

  • Offer one-on-one peer support and tenant rights information to those in crisis on the Statewide Tenants' Rights Hotline (*Full English fluency is required to use our hotline tools, but if you speak English & Spanish, we would love to have you in a bilingual capacity)
  • Meet one shift per week from 5:00 - 8:00pm PST on Mon,Tues,Wed,Thurs or 1:00 - 4:00pm PST on Fri; ~12-15 hours per month with minimum 3 month commitment

Data & Tech Team

Research & Advocacy Team

We are in great need of bilingual English/Spanish speaking volunteers! At the moment full English proficiency is required to use all hotline tools. Please consider volunteering if you speak Spanish fluently so we can make the hotline as accessible to monolingual Spanish speakers and immigrant communities as possible.

Accessibility: This training series will only be offered online via video/teleconference. If you have any accessibility concerns, requests or comments please email nina@tenantstogether.org.

We aim to help build an anti-racist, feminist, multiracial, anti-oppressive tenant movement. This means we do not tolerate racism, homophobia, ableism, transphobia, islamophobia, classism, cis-sexism, or sexism. We also hope to continue working to make this event, and our office, as accessible as possible to everyone who is interested in being part of the fight for housing justice.
