Community Alliance of Tenants (CAT)


Communications and Advocacy for CAT and Cancel the Rent

About the Project

We have worked with the Community Alliance of Tenants on an ongoing basis on their communications strategies, advocacy efforts, and strategic planning. With an increased focus on renters and housing policy across Oregon and the country, we help the Community Alliance of Tenants telling their story and positioning themselves in public conversations.
As the only statewide organization led by tenants, our team has helped them raise their media profile and shape the legislative conversation on rent stabilization – simultaneously staying authentic to the desires of their membership and building collaboration with policy makers. We also worked to rebrand the organization and overhaul their website to provide both renters and other key audiences with easy access to needed information and how to access assistance. We are proud to continue our work with them on behalf of tenants.
