Office of Neighborship: Housing Self-Defense

 Office of Speculative Neighborship
Experiment #3:

Housing Self-Defense

In collaboration with Eric J Olson, the Office of Speculative Neighborship led an introductory self-defense training using principles of tenants’ rights. Participants also learned to break wooden boards naming their own worst fears of housing insecurity. This workshop was part of the Schemers, Scammers and Subverters Symposium.

Basic self-defense scenarios:

1. Enforcing necessary repairs
2. Asserting the right to 24 hour notice of landlord inspection
3. Securing relocation assistance in case of no-cause eviction or rent increase
