Help me raise funds on Amplify Austin Day for the Austin Tenants Council!
by Kate Moore
I am privileged to volunteer as the Board chair for the Austin Tenants Council. I dedicated most of my professional career to the creation of affordable housing, but few things I have worked on have been as important as my work with the Austin Tenants Council. My work started in my 20's with my experience working with homeless families, where I got to know mostly single moms, who struggled to find one of the most basic of human rights - a place to live and raise your children. The Austin Tenants Council lives and breathes the idea that everyone has a basic right to safe, decent, affordable housing.

Low-income households often have few places to turn. We help people to know their rights when they may have no one to turn to. We help fight housing discrimination through fair housing investigations. We help renters learn how to advocate to keep their housing and get needed repairs through understanding landlord tenant laws.

We are incredibly lucky to have these services in Austin, because we are one of the few Tenants Councils in Texas. I am lucky enough to volunteer my time with this incredibly hard working board and staff who go above and beyond every day to help Austin renters. Like all nonprofits, we want to do more and serve more people. Please join me in helping support our organization.

Eviction Prevention Education
by David Jones
I AmplifyATX because I support the Austin Tenants Council and the mission to educate the community about fair housing rights.

In 1999, I received an eviction notice. I was in disbelief, because I notified the landlord in writing that in thirty days, I was moving.

I didn't know about Austin Tenants Council, but I went to the eviction court.

I found out the landlord wanted me out immediately. He thought I was not moving fast enough. On a Friday evening, I found an eviction notice taped on my door.

When the court discovered I had moved, the case was dismissed. However, I have a permanent eviction record on my credit history. Every time I move, I have to get a letter of recommendation for a lease approval.

It's too late for the Austin Tenants Council to help me. So, as Chair of Resource Development, I'm asking for your $10 (or more) donation, to help Austin Tenants Council prevent the devastating effects of an eviction.

There might be other solutions, I know one solution is education about fair housing rights: #evictionPreventioneducation!
