As Oregon's only grassroots, tenant-controlled, tenant-rights organization, the Community Alliance of Tenants (CAT) develops the leadership of low-income tenants to hold landlords and public officials accountable for unjust housing policies and practices. As rent continues to skyrocket, CAT has called for a Renter’s State of Emergency, campaigning for inclusionary zoning laws and an end to no-cause evictions and unreasonable rent increases.
