Member Organizations (our coalition): 
Tenant groups or tenant-lawyer groups working at the local or regional level for renters’ rights. 
 
Tenants Together works to build capacity of member organizations, build solidarity among member organizations, develop shared strategies, and represent the interests of our member organizations. To join, a group must meet all of following criteria:
 
1. Not organized for profit;
2. Core mission is the advancement of tenant rights at the local or regional level;
3. Group effectively works to build a base of tenant members, tenant member organizations, or provides direct service to tenants.
4. Does not organize, educate, or represent residential landlords;
5. Legal work supports or does not conflict with grassroots base-building organizations;
6. Commits to engage in our coalition to build tenant power collectively statewide and present a united front against big real-estate;
7. Makes sliding scale donations to Tenants Together annually in support.
8. Coalitions/networks can join if all organizational members in the coalition or network agree and are joining as their own organization as well.
 
Partners (our network): 
Nonprofits, coalitions and networks prioritizing renters’ rights. Statewide and national groups welcome. To qualify as partner organizations, a group must meet all of following criteria: 
 
1. Not organized for profit;
2. A primary program area is the advancement of tenant rights at the local, state or national level;
4. Does not organize, educate, or represent residential landlords;
5. Commits to contribute time and resources to work closely with Tenants Together to advance renters rights; 
6. Makes sliding scale donations to Tenants Together annually to support our work.
 
Allies (our network): 
Groups who reliably support or show up in the fight for rights of renters. Allied organizations must meet the following criteria:
 
1. Support tenant rights by signing support letters or attending mobilizations;
3. Contributes time, money, or other resources to support TT’s work.
 

Annual donations are on a sliding scale depending on your budget.
Members tend to be able to contribute more in time than money, while the reverse is true for most allied organizations.
