Tenant Rights Workshop
We have seen many issues associated with the home-rental industry. In many cases tenants do not know their rights and landlords take advantage of this. Unfortunately, landlord-tenant laws in N.C. favor landlords more. This can be attributed to the fact that landlords are currently better organized and have their own associations to lobby in their favor. This is why Action NC is working on creating a tenants' rights association, in order to give tenants a voice and affect legislation with the purpose of gaining more protections for tenants.
In Charlotte, we have already formed such a committee and have had several victories. The purpose and mission of the tenants' rights association is to educate and develop leadership from the ranks of renters and help them work toward better legislation that will support the interests of renters as well as provide more protections against bad policies.
To this effect, we will be holding this training for the community, in order to educate renters on their rights and teach them how to protect them. It is our purpose to develop grassroots leaders, in order to give a voice to the community.
