Oakland Tenants Union

Oakland Tenants Union (OTU) is a community-based volunteer organization of housing activists dedicated to protecting tenant rights and interests in Oakland. OTU does this by working directly with tenants in their struggles with landlords; impacting legislation and public policy about housing; community education; and by working with other organizations committed to furthering renters’ rights.  

OTU runs a tenant rights hotline at (510) 704-5276

OTU members are also available for questions at the Oakland Public Library Main Branch on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month from 3:00-5:00 pm at the Veteran's Center in the main lobby.
