Help us build the first branch of the London Renters Union. When can you come door knocking in Newham?

This year, get involved with helping to launch the London Renters Union. Together we can stand up to landlords, take collective action, and give the housing system the reboot it needs.

We need your help to build the first branch of the London Renters Union in Newham, one of the areas of London where the housing crisis is most serious.

Starting on January 15, the London Renters Union is knocking on doors and talking to people across Newham as a key part of building the first branch of the Union in the borough.

Door knocking is a great way we can let people know about the London Renters Union and listen to people talk about the housing challenges they are facing.

Fill out this form to let us know when you’re available to come door knocking with the London Renters Union.

To begin with, we’ll be going door knocking on Saturdays, Mondays and Tuesdays. On Mondays and Tuesdays, we’ll be doing an afternoon session starting at 3:45pm and an evening session starting at 5:45pm. Saturday sessions will start at 11am.

We need as many people to get involved and help us to build the power we need to transform the housing system. No previous experience is necessary. We’ll provide training, support and refreshments to everyone who joins in.

Getting involved in door knocking is a great way to help build the London Renters Union, have interesting, meaningful conversations and meet other people interested in transforming London’s housing system.Fill out this form to let us know which dates you’ll join us to go door knocking: https://londonrentersunion.typeform.com/to/Jjfl4b

From January 15 until February 3, we’ll be focusing on Forest Gate South, one of the areas of Newham with the highest proportion of private renters. We’ll be door knocking in other parts of Newham in February and March.

We hope you’ll be able to join us as we start to have the conversations and build the relationships we need to create to help transform the housing system.

In love and solidarity,
All the London Renters Union crew
