(Political Advocacy)

We envision an Oregon where oppressive housing systems and practices aren’t the norm, perceived identity is no longer a predictor of housing stability and, our contribution to our economy is recognized for its inherent value.

To this end, Community Alliance of Tenants Action Fund engages in policy development in local, regional, and statewide jurisdictions in the State of Oregon. We work intimately with partners across the state to craft, advocate for, and support the implementation of policies that will help renters assert their visions for equitable, safe, stable, and affordable housing.


Our legislature failed renters in the 2017 legislative session. 2019, it's time to come back.

Stronger than ever.
