Oakland Tenants Union meets regularly at 7:00-9:00 pm on the second Monday of each month (next is January 8, 2018).
Our monthly meetings are held in the Community Room of the Madison Park Apartments, 100 9th Street (at Oak Street, across from the Lake Merritt BART Station). To enter, gently knock on the window of the room to the right of the main entrance to the building.
