Who We Are

The Honolulu Tenants Union is a group of tenants pushing back against abusive landlords, building tenant power, and fighting for housing as a human right. We believe that everyone deserves housing. The only way we will accomplish this is through collective action and building tenant power in Honolulu. For this reason, we see the need for an island-wide organized tenant movement capable of securing our right to housing and taking control out of the hands of the landlord and developer class and putting it back in the hands of the people!

We are member-funded and have no paid staff. Rather we are a community of tenants coming together to build the world we need and deserve. We are out in the community, knocking on doors, and organizing with our neighbors. Do you want to organize your building or neighborhood? Let's do it together!
