Organizing Toolkit

Learn how to organize your neighbors.

This toolkit, which was originally made by the Kansas City Tenant Union and adapted by us, intends to help you organize a tenant union regardless of your experience. We will also check in to build connections, give further training, and offer help getting any necessary legal support. Just make a copy and get started!

Eviction Mapping

View our map on evictions in Maricopa County

Eviction map

Worried About Rent (WAR) combats the deep-rooted racial and economic exploitation in the Valley of the Sun, that now manifests as gentrification and displacement, by building solidarity with our neighbors. We believe that everyone deserves a roof over their head regardless of their financial circumstances, and we're organizing to fight for it.

The purpose of this map is to help us pinpoint the major evictors in each Maricopa County justice court precinct and begin outreach to tenants who are hardest hit by predatory landlords, property managers and developers. We want to disintegrate the deep-rooted racial and economic exploitation in Arizona by building a community of care through collective action.
