Formed in 1996, the Community Alliance of Tenants (CAT) is Oregon’s only statewide, grassroots, tenant-controlled, tenant-rights organization.  CAT educates, organizes and develops the leadership of low-income tenants to directly challenge unjust housing policies and practices.  Our mission is to educate and empower tenants to demand affordable, stable and safe rental homes.  We address the impact Oregon’s decreasing supply of decent, affordable housing and absence of meaningful tenant protections has on low-income tenants.

CAT is a tenant membership organization.  Low-income tenants – predominately low-wage workers, families with children, people living with disabilities, seniors, and people of color - are CAT’s primary membership base.  CAT is building a strong housing justice movement that is led and directed by those who are most impacted by Oregon’s affordable housing crisis - low-income renters.
CAT has a vision of social justice where everyone’s basic needs are met and all people are treated with compassion and justice regardless of race, income, sex, gender identity, ability, sexual orientation and immigration status.  We believe that everyone deserves to have a direct say in the decisions that impact our lives and that the people affected by problems should direct their solutions. Through leadership development and community organizing we seek to build the power of low-income tenants and tenants of color to win improvements in housing conditions and direct the future of our communities.
