Why Rent Freedom Day
4th February is Rent Freedom Day. Thousands of private renters will descend on Westminster for the day. It is our last chance before the election to show politicians that our votes cannot be taken for granted.
We have worked with a wide range of partners to come up with a schedule of events that informs, entertains and empowers renters. Not only will we have the first Hustings of the 2015 General Election campaign but we’re also organising a national lobby of Parliament on the same day. We’ll have a main platform session debating Rent Control and a dozen fringe sessions debating current issues for renters or training renters in their rights, campaigning or organising. We’re also getting some comedians in to lighten the mood over lunch.
