May 14 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
We are a group of Bay Area tenants who are fed up with rising rents, evictions, and harassment at the hands of landlords.

A council is a group of tenants who work together to wield collective power against a shared landlord in order to improve their conditions.

Strike Debt Bay Area: Debt Resistance is NOT Futile! @ Omni Commons
May 19 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Please come to our Inequality Seminar on Sunday, 4/29 at 11:00 AM at the OMNI! Strike Debt is building a debt resistance movement. We believe that most individual debt is illegitimate and unjust. Most of us fall into debt because we are increasingly deprived of the means to acquire the basic necessities of life: health care, education, and housing. Because we are forced to go into debt simply in order to live, we think it is right and moral to resist it. Come get connected with SDBA’s projects! Presenting debt … Continued

TENANT AND NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCILS, Public Meeting. @ Omni Commons
May 21 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Tenant and Neighborhood Councils (TANC) is a member-run housing organization built out of the East Bay Democratic Socialists of America. We encourage all tenants of private landlords, unhoused people, and public housing residents, to join us in organizing councils. Existing avenues for combating rising rents, slumlord behavior, and evictions are channeled through non-profit organizations. These types of organizations, while a critical resource for tenants, do not necessarily challenge the larger structural dilemma that we face—the subjugation of housing under capitalism. Effectively challenging well-heeled landlords, developers, and state managers depends on … Continued
