Mission Statement

The mission of Arizona Tenants Union, Inc. is to change the landlord/tenant landscape in Arizona by creating a nonprofit, membership-driven tenants’ rights organization, which will let tenants know they have rights in Arizona, and advocate on their behalf for those rights. ATU will accomplish this by publicizing the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act, providing advocacy for members in individual problems, organizing buildings to give tenants strength by speaking to their landlord collectively, and providing technical assistance to community organizations, police departments, justice courts, and other agencies that serve tenants. ATU will also advocate and organize for legislative changes that will strengthen the landlord/tenant act and tenants’ rights in general.
