Help us build the union this Spring – join us for door knocking and street stalls!

Mar 28, 2019 | News

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 more information on location.

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. We also usually provide scripts or cheat sheets for anyone who may find them useful!

This spring, join us as we run door knocking sessions and street stalls in the three main places we currently have branches: Lewisham, Hackney and Newham & Leytonstone. We have dates confirmed in April/May for Lewisham, where we’ll be running a stall in Deptford, a stall in Dalston, Hackney, and doorknocking in Manor Park, Newham.

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, leaflets/stickers, support and refreshments to everyone who joins us. See you there! 🌈🌻

Campaign paused while Mary awaits offer from Advance

LRU members met with Advance Glenisters on Monday to negotiate repayment for fellow member Mary, as part of an ongoing campaign challenging the discrimination faced by recipients of housing benefits. Following the meeting, the union has agreed to pause the campaign against the company until the weekend, when Advance agreed to make a clear repayment offer for some of the debts Mary incurred to pay the costs they demanded of her last year.
