Protecting Tenant Rights

Action NC TORC empowers tenants living in private and subsidized housing to organize to ensure tenants' rights and preserve quality, safe, and affordable housing.

We build power to influence housing policies that will provide higher protections to renters in NC by organizing tenant unions, tenant-led know your rights workshops, and providing leadership development for our members.

Action NC TORC focuses on:

  • Stopping unlawful eviction and displacement
  • Combating Slum Housing conditions
  • Advocating for new affordable housing through initiatives such as mixed housing/inclusionary housing ordinances
  • Organizing Tenant Unions
  • Organizing Know Your Rights Workshops
  • Offering Leadership Development Workshops
  • And much more
