Our Members Organized A Tenant Union

We’re thrilled to share a major success in our ongoing fight for housing justice. Last Thursday, we organized an impactful press conference with the residents of The Enclave apartment complex in Silver Spring, Maryland.

In collaboration with tenant residents and dedicated elected officials, we addressed the longstanding issues at The Enclave, emphasizing the urgent need for change and swift resolution of tenant concerns. The event was a remarkable achievement, leading to the establishment of a tenant union with The Enclave residents, giving them a powerful tool to fight back and reclaim their rights.

For those who missed the event, you can catch the action livestream videos on our Facebook page. Our efforts have also garnered attention from the media and you can check out the video below to see news coverage of the event.

As we continue our work for housing justice, we want to keep you informed about the exciting initiatives and campaigns we have on the horizon. In this week’s memo, you’ll find updates on the upcoming municipal election, ways to get involved, and news you can use!

In Solidarity,

The Progressive Maryland Team

Watch How We Organized a Tenant Union in Montgomery County

We made significant strides in our commitment to addressing housing issues that affect our neighbors by organizing our members in a tenant association in Silver Spring. With our support, these tenants are fighting back against the horrific and unlivable conditions that Enclave management has allowed to persist for years.

We’re talking building flooding, abhorrent unclean common areas, consistently broken elevators, and too many unsightly pests. These are issues no one should have to endure in their living space.

Then we hosted a powerful press conference where we stood in solidarity with the residents of The Enclave apartment complex to call attention to these issues. Local officials County Executive Marc Elrich, Councilmember Kristin Mink, and Delegate Lorig Charkoudian showed support for their constituents too. As a result of this effort, a new Tenant Union was formed, equipping residents with a powerful tool to regain their rights.

Check out the livestream of the press conference, and then donate here so we can keep up this fight and win housing justice here in Montgomery County.

This is an ongoing effort, and we’re counting on your support to keep it going. Your contribution will make a meaningful impact on the lives of your neighbors and friends, and the countless other tenants in Montgomery County who are unfortunately facing similar challenges.
