If you don’t like landlords, you are likely not alone. They raise rents, fall back on maintenance, and issue evictions, even when renters didn’t do anything wrong. Channel that anger in a more productive setting with a group of likeminded individuals. Serve The People — Pittsburgh holds a meeting to discuss the problems associated with gentrification, displacement, and evictions. The group knows elected officials don’t always respond swiftly when it comes to housing crises, so they want to educate people on how to take power into their own hands. The meeting includes a short film screening followed by a discussion. Strategies will be discussed on how best to fight the power of landlords and developers. The meeting is held in East Liberty, where many of these battles have played out in recent years.
