Get involved

 

The Eviction Defence Network is only as strong as our members! We are always looking for more people to join, no matter what your skills are. Here are the different ways you can participate in the network:

Organize your building

This is the most important step to build our power against evictions. Look at our resource page  and give us a call if you are interested to organize your building!

If you are afraid of retaliation from your building manager or landlord, call us anyway and we can talk through what strategy could be put in place. There’s strength in numbers.

Join our weekly meetings

Since the pandemic, we meet every Wednesday online to plan the next steps of our network and think through how to organize towards our goal.

Our meetings are open to everyone interested in getting involved! Want to join us? Give us a call at 604-630-1722 or email evictiondefencenetwork@gmail.com

Join the anti-eviction flying squad

We need to build our numbers against the power of landlords, cops, and politicians. When a tenant in contact with our network is being thrown out of their home, we aim to respond rapidly to stand against the violence of the bailiffs. 

The form each eviction defence action takes is led by the tenants affected and varies depending on each situation. It may go from a phone zap (mass phone calls to a landlord for example) or an anti-eviction blockade. You can sign up to join our flying squad – either by giving us a call at 604-630-1722 or by letting us know in the contact form at the bottom of this page.

Donate

To become sustainable, our network requires funds! At this point we do not require dues, and count on your generosity. If you’re able to, give us a call or email us to make a donation to the Eviction Defence Network.
