Time: 6pm – 8.30pm
Location: Common Room, Pelican House, 144 Cambridge Heath Rd, London E1 5QJ
They say knowledge is power, which is why the Education Working Group is a vital part of our Union! The Education Working Group develops training and education which boosts our ability to take on landlords and win.
We’re holding a planning meeting soon, and we need you! We will collectively create the plans for the working group over the next year. We will discuss:
💥 What skills and knowledge does the membership need for us to make a stronger union?
💥 What aspects of the housing system do renters need to know more about?
💥 What can the Education Working Group do to support members on the frontline?
If you are interested in any of the above, this planning session is for you! No prior knowledge or experience is needed, but we are especially keen to hear the views of anyone active in a branch or group.
You can come to this session as a one-off to share your views or join the discussion. It’s also a great place to start if you want to know more about about our work or to get involved.
Food will be provided. Let us know in the form below if you have any dietary requirements. Childcare will be available if requested in the form below, but please aim to let us know by Monday 4th July.

Do you know how to spot an immigration raid? Do you know how to monitor police in your area? Do you want to learn how to challenge raids and intervene when you see police harassment and brutality? The London Renters Union are hosting an anti-raids x copwatch training delivered by Lewisham Anti-Raids and Hackney Copwatch. The workshop will help you understand how to monitor police, and safely intervene during immigration raids and police incidents.
We know plenty about what’s wrong with housing in London, but how could it be better? This panel discussion will be a chance to think about housing futures, both in the short term and long term. What housing would you want to live in? Does it already exist or do you want to create something new? How can we move housing away from being a prop for the economy towards being embedded in community? What can we do to build our visions for housing together?
Across the city, LRU is building the power of renters. In the upcoming local elections, this means councillors want our votes, and are meeting our demands. Across 6 London boroughs, LRU members have developed local demands about changes they want to see the council...
