THE MISSION of the Tenant Union Representative Network is to advance and defend the rights and interests of tenants and homeless people.

OUR GOAL is to guarantee to all Philadelphians equal access to safe, decent, accessible, and affordable housing. We accomplish this goal by developing and implementing a common agenda -involving TURN leadership, staff and membership, and community allies – according to the following principles.

WE ADVOCATE on behalf of tenants and homeless people to guarantee their rights to decent and affordable housing.

WE ORGANIZE our members, tenant groups, communities, community leaders, and others to fight for justice in housing and assure fair treatment and respect for tenants and homeless people.
