About Us

The SFTU is a membership-supported, volunteer-based community organization. We believe that housing is a basic human right. Housing should be available to all people, regardless of income, and no person should be homeless for any reason.

The Tenants Union is the city's oldest and largest tenant organization and our membership is as diverse as the tenant population of San Francisco. The Tenants Union provides tenants' rights counseling for members and non-members at a daily drop-in clinic and assists tenants organizing their buildings. The Tenants Union is also a strong political force with a record of successful legislative advocacy, including 1994's Proposition I, which expanded San Francisco's rent control law and 1998's Proposition G, which drastically limited Owner Move-In evictions.
