fairhousingTURN’s mission is to educate and organize tenants to promote housing as a human right. This is motivated by the belief that everyone is entitled to a decent place to live regardless of his or her social status or circumstances.

As we work towards an incorporation of  Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights into Philadelphia’s housing laws, we want you to know the laws relevant to renters.  A summary of existing landlord tenant law in Philadelphia can be found in TURN’s Tenant Bill of Rights.
