About CHTU

Meet CHTU

The Crown Heights Tenant Union (CHTU) is a union of Tenant Associations (TAs), that began meeting on October 2013 in response to rampant gentrification, displacement, and illegal rental overcharges in the neighborhood. There are over 40 buildings in our union that have come together to demand new, stronger protections that guarantee tenants’ rights.

Over the years we have worked together to bring our concerns and demands to our collective landlords and local officials. It is our collective duty as residents of Crown Heights, Brooklyn, NY to help educate our neighbors and speak up for all those who are unable to.

Join us at one of our upcoming meetings or Actions or contact us for more information.

Stoop Court

DELENE & DEXTER FIGHT BACK!
Friday, October 30
22 Hawthorne Street
10am

Delene and Dexter’s landlord, Seyed Moussavi, has hired goons to try to scare them into moving — goons have threatened to physically attack Dexter. 

Meanwhile, the roof collapsed on Delene. Dexter worked for four years as the building’s super, all without pay. Now, we fight back — beginning with stoop court. 

All out to support Delene and Dexter. 

Tenant power!
