Reconnecting an Organization with its Tenant Members

Overview

Tenants and Neighbors helps tenants build and effectively wield their collective power to preserve at-risk affordable housing and strengthen tenants' rights in New York. In 2011, Participatory Community Engagement students worked alongside staff of Tenants and Neighbors to help them reconnect to their membership. Students facilitated community building gatherings where they uncovered stories that were subsequently published in a tenant advocacy booklet used statewide. Pedagogy and facilitation tools were developed and are now used at staff meetings and retreats.
