Join Mass Union on August 10 to share your Stewardship and Success Stories! While there are many challenges for Local Tenant Organizations in public housing, there has also been a lot of success and stewardship. Residents live on the property 24/7 and often take important steps to care for the buildings and the community. Residents:

When residents work together, they can accomplish all this and more. LTOs have won:

  • Better maintenance and sanitation
  • New kitchens and bathrooms
  • Respectful treatment
  • And more!

Join us to lift up and celebrate these and other successes!

June 16: Join us on Zoom to Discuss Redevelopment

Join us on June 16, 2023 at 11am to discuss REDEVELOPMENT of Public Housing.

Redevelopment occurs when a Local Housing Authority partners with other organizations, such as for-profit developers and Community Development Corporations, to redevelop a building.

Tenants have many feelings and thoughts about this process. Please join us on June 16 to review our REDEVELOPMENT BILL OF RIGHTS and provide your input on this important document.

On June 26, Mass Union will testify about a bill that will protect tenants during and after redevelopment.
