The Rent Crisis: A People’s Perspective

12227811_10153624446356023_812068377917866947_n

 

Portland is in a Renter State of Emergency.

No-cause evictions and rent increases are at record levels.

Landlords and developers are forcing responsible and reliable tenants out of their homes and communities, into one of the worst and most aggressive rental markets in history, without consideration of the impacts on our tenants.

It’s time for tenants and working Portlanders to come together and say enough.

On Wednesday, December 9th, the Oregonian will be hosting a panel of “concerned citizens and community experts,” which includes speakers such as one of the most prominent developers in the Pearl District and the wealthiest Portland City Commissioner. While the people on this panel do make major decisions about housing in our community, this panel clearly fails to reflect the diverse perspectives of the working class people who are affected by the housing crisis in Portland.

So on the Wednesday after, December 16th, join Know Your City and Portland Tenants United (Portland’s new tenant union) for a community dialogue about how these skyrocketing rents impact our communities, and what we can do about it. Topics will include no cause evictions, government policy, homelessness and camping – and will include the perspectives of women, people of color, and perhaps most importantly, renters.

Join us at Community Warehouse for this panel. Speakers include:

-Katrina Holland, Community Alliance of Tenants
-Margot Black, Portland Tenants United
-Vahid Brown, Hazelnut Grove
-Josh Alpert, Chief of Staff for Mayor Charlie Hales
-Meg Guerra, Hacienda CDC

Moderator: Michelle DePass, Portland Housing Bureau

We will also be engaging in group breakout sessions after the panel so that every attendee can have their voice heard.

5:00 – Doors Open
5:30 – Panel Begins
6:15 – Group Breakout Sessions

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    A lot of of whatever you articulate happens to be astonishingly appropriate and it makes me ponder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this with this light previously. Your article really did turn the light on for me as far as this specific subject goes. But at this time there is 1 issue I am not really too comfy with and while I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual core theme of your issue, let me observe just what the rest of the readers have to point out.Nicely done.
