Help us build the power of renters – join us for door knocking and street stalls
By knocking on doors and running street stalls, we let people know about the London Renters Union and find out about the housing challenges they are facing.
Fill out the form on this page to let us know when you can join us and we’ll send you information about meeting points.
Door knocking and street stalls are an easy, fun way to get involved with the London Renters Union, meet LRU members and have interesting, meaningful conversations with other Londoners. Don’t worry if you’ve never done anything like this before – we can pair you up with someone who has and give you lots of tips and support.
This autumn, join us as we run door knocking sessions and street stalls in the three main places we’re currently building branches: Lewisham, Hackney and Newham & Leytonstone. We have dates confirmed for Lewisham, where we’ll be starting in Catford, and will have dates for the Hackney and Newham & Leytonstone branches soon.
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 us.
