September LRU meeting: Building the union and supporting each other
1-4pm // Saturday 8 September
Waterloo Action Resource Centre, 14 Baylis Rd, SE1 7AA
If you’re facing a housing problem or would like to get involved with building the union, join our open meeting where together we can support each other and claim back our housing rights!
In this meeting we’ll get to know each other, share info about the rights we have and don’t have as renters, and introduce the London Renters Union.
This meeting is free for all LRU members and you can join as a member on the day – but please let us know you’re coming using the form on this page.
We’ll talk about the campaigns and collective action we can take to make sure all Londoners have a decent, secure and affordable place to call home.
They’ll also be time in the meeting for members with housing problems to get support with the problems they have.
New members will also have a chance to get involved in the core work of building the union with our Outreach, Communications, Education and Demands, Finance, and Member Support working groups.
We are currently building branches in Newham & Leytonstone, Lewisham and Hackney. Let us know at the meeting if you’d like to get involved in one of those branches or if you’d like to help build a branch in your area.
Childcare, food, tea and coffee will be provided. Please get in touch if we can help make it easier for you to attend.
This meeting is free for all LRU members and you can join as a member on the day – but please register using the form on this page.
