Who We Are

Protect Oakland Renters (POR) is a group of grassroots organizations and tenant advocates who want dignified, safe and truly affordable homes for Oakland residents. We campaigned to pass Measure JJ in November 2016 to expand eviction and rent control protections to tenants in Oakland.

Through grassroots organizing, we were a part of the fight for Measure Y to be placed on the November ballot. In July 2018, by unanimous vote of City Council, Measure Y was placed on the ballot. Measure Y is a straightforward revision of the ”Just Cause” for eviction ordinance.
