The Metropolitan Tenants Organization advocates for policy change that will improve the lives of Chicago’s renters.  Our advocacy is driven by renters and their needs.  Renters decide the campaigns that we will work on and the strategies that we will employ.  MTO serves as a vehicle for renters to make decisions and to bring the voice of renters into larger policy discussions.  We do this through engaging in research, organizing grassroots events and joining larger city, state and national coalitions.
