Join us!

The real power in our union is the strength of our members. Join the movement! You can join our mailing list, and then pay dues to become a member.

Like all unions, PTU is funded directly by us — the members! Our dues keep our basic operations going, including event organizing, online calls, printing, and text-banking. Please take a moment to set up your monthly dues payments. Check the box that says "Make this a monthly donation."

Dues are $5 a month if you are employed and housing secure. Otherwise $1 a month, but no one is denied PTU membership for lack of funds! They can be paid through PayPal in the membership form, or in cash at a PTU meeting.

How we are structured

We are structured so that decisions are made democratically by our membership. However, we have point people who coordinate teams to accomplish important tasks between and during our meetings like translation, managing emails, neighborhood outreach, etc. Below are the active teams in PTU.

Organize outreach to various Pasadena neighborhoods to spread the word and build the strength of our movement for tenant rights.
Organize the regular meetings, compile the agenda, send out PTU emails, and monitor the PTU email inbox.
Language Justice
Translate important documents and provide live interpretation during meetings/events.
Tenant Solidarity
Provide information and peer counseling for tenants who reach out to PTU. Organize actions in solidarity with PTU members.
