Unfortunately the Central Valley Tenants Union is no longer active. Our priority was organizing tenants in buildings to fight against landlords, and we hope you will consider talking to your neighbors and following the steps laid out in the resources below.
If you want to organize a tenants association in your building there are many resources and we recommend these two: https://docs.google.com/document/d/16s-CHN29u01j3VdGJGOehhYliqeCAH9ux0yE9yCVujI/edit
If you have questions about your rights: Search Mass Legal Help, this is where we got all of our information. https://www.masslegalhelp.org/housing
If you need a lawyer: https://www.hfmgpc.com/
For low-income clients: https://communitylegal.org/
We wish you the best luck accessing these resources and fighting for your rights. We still see a need for an organization like this, but the people currently involved cannot take the lead on it right now. The landlord-tenant dynamic is not going away any time soon and we encourage you to fight for what is right and look to your neighbors for support and solidarity.
