    Renters Rising Reading

    09:00 - 18:00Wycliffe Church

    233 Kings Road, Reading RG1 4LS

    A Renters Rising workshop for Reading and the Southeast held by ACORN Reading.

    These workshops are at the heart of our plan to build a renters’ union – enabling you to meet like-minded folks, learn about renters’ rights and the small skills we can use to build a BIG movement. It’ll be a day of training in the skills needed to build a large, powerful movement to ensure that renters and the communities in which we live, are able to have a say in guaranteeing that the private rental sector is fit for standard.

    Renters pay the most to live in the worst conditions with the least security. This will give people the tools to change that.We’ll be focused on the methods used to build a movement, looking at Community Organising methods.

    We’ll discuss some of the issues facing renters and look into what can be done to improve the situation. We’ll also look at the organisation ACORN are setting up to fight for these improvements, and finally we’ll decide how we in Reading want to move forward with this campaign.
