Eviction Defense Response Team

Join the Eviction Defense Response Team

As the COVID eviction protections are lifted, landlords are beginning to ramp up evictions. A patchwork of policy at the city, county, state, and national level offers some protection but we need to support tenants facing evictions now, and to prepare for the wave of evictions that are sure to hit as more protections expire.

PTU is preparing some trainings for eviction defense, and wants to be ready to deploy volunteers for court support, protesting and direct action around the city, and resisting evictions directly at people's homes.

Join our list to find out about upcoming trainings, and so we can contact you when the need arises:
