Tenant Leadership Academy

This year, IU held the first Inquilinos Unidos’ Tenant Leadership Academy, a 17-week session training including workshops on housing policy, tenants’ responsibilities, and community
leadership.

Our objective: to empower tenants to take on leadership roles in their communities. Thirty-four tenants participated in the academy, and most took part of lobbying activities held at the Sacramento State Capitol and Los Angeles and Long Beach City Halls. They also volunteered and canvassed in support Proposition 10—mobilizing hundreds of tenants who came to IU for help in 2017 and 2018. With your help, in 2019, we will host two Tenants Leadership Academies and will mobilize hundreds of tenants on various healthy housing advocacy activities.

The Inquilinos Unidos’ Tenant Leadership Academy, 1st Generation, wants to thank LA City Council President Herb Wesson Jr. for his support throughout our 17 weeks in the academy.
