On September 17, we participated in the Portland Tenants United event at the Portland City Hall. Portland Tenants United is dedicated to protecting the rights of renters in the city of Portland. The September 17 event was held on the anniversary of the city’s declaration of a housing emergency. The goal of the event was to raise awareness for the need for rent control in a city where rapidly rising rental rates are making safe housing out of reach for many.
The video is of us dancing. Our message is that we are “One Tribe” and we have to take care of one another. After our performance, we were honored by the many young people who joined in and learned the dance.
