THE STORY:

The Justin Buri Tenant Leadership Fund has been created to pay tribute to and further the work of a very dear friend, colleague and fearless leader in our community.. Truly a force to be reckoned with, Justin will be sorely missed but, in part through this Fund, his impact on housing justice in Oregon will not only not be forgotten but will continue to bear fruit into the future. Justin began his journey with CAT in 2009 as a volunteer, helping Oregon's tenants navigate the very difficult world of learning and standing up for our rights and responsibilities as tenants in Oregon; eventually standing at the helm of Oregon's only statewide renters rights organization as Executive Director. He helped champion historic changes in landlord tenant law ranging from making it illegal to discriminate against Housing Choice Voucher recipients, increasing the notice period for tenants living in their homes longer than one year from 30 days to 60 days, advocating for Portland's current Enhanced Inspections program, to leading the charge on declaring Oregon's current #RenterStateofEmergency, the ripple effects of which we are still seeing today. Justin was instrumental in lifting the voices and experiences of the most-impacted tenants to our policy makers at local, regional, state, and national levels - he recognized and prioritized the need to connect low income families, people of color, people with disabilities, seniors, immigrants and refugees directly to their elected officials. It is fitting to honor his passion and his work through a fund which will fuel tenant advocacy by addressing barriers to Leadership Development and Advocacy that Oregon's most impacted tenants experience. This fund will be used to cover the costs of leadership development and advocacy for low income tenants including paying for practical and important accessibility to advocacy opportunities - for example -childcare, interpretation services, transportation, lost wages, food.
