Now is the time for bold leadership on housing to protect Bellingham and the people who live and work here. There are many laws we can pass to protect tenants. Sign our Open Letter!

We have a variety of events, whether it's fighting for tenant rights and speaking up together at City Council, community service, or making decisions as a union at one of our General Membership Meetings.
> SPREAD THE WORD
Tell your friends, family, and colleagues about our involvement. Face-to-face conversations are the best way to get others involved. Follow us on social media and help us get the word out.
> SHARE YOUR HOUSING STORY
What has your experience been renting in Bellingham? We want to hear your story. Together we can expose slumlords, shine a light on housing injustices, and make our case to the city why we must change laws to protect tenants. #VentYourRent
> I'M A RENTER AND I VOTE
Many renters are busy, have to move frequently, and forget to vote. WE CAN CHANGE THIS. TurboVote makes voting easy. Get text and email reminders about elections, register to vote, request a ballot, and more!
Contribute to our movement - we're fighting for a Bellingham where everyone has a safe, healthy, and affordable home. Grassroots donations are critical to keeping our union independent.
> EDUCATE YOURSELF ON HOUSING
How did we get into this mess? Why has affordability gotten so much worse recently? What solutions have other communities implemented to protect tenants and provide affordable and healthy homes?
