Our mission is to build relational power to improve the lives of Tulsa tenants.


Why form a Tenant Association?

In Tulsa and across Oklahoma, tenants are suffering from a number of issues that affect their living situations, including:

  • Lack of safe, affordable housing
  • Poor property upkeep
  • Lacking legal protections
  • Loneliness and displacement
  • Scarce accommodations for disabled residents
  • Other economic and systemic issues
Currently, the most powerful voices in housing policy represent landowners.

It's time for tenants to have a seat at the table, too.


Our approach

People are our priority.

We are a grassroots association of tenants building solidarity and coalition from the ground up to self-advocate and change policy.

We accomplish this through:

  • Cultivating relationships across lines of difference
  • Highlighting the stories and struggles of tenants in the Tulsa area
  • Developing tenants to be changemakers through mentorship, civic education, and leadership training
  • Raising funds through dues, donations, and grants
