716 Madison Street Tenants' Association, Inc.

Who We Are

 

 

Meeting at Emery Recreation Center

On Thursday, January 5, 2006 at 7:00 pm tenants in the neighborhood met at Emery Recreation Center to discuss tenants' right to purchase their buildings when landlords decide to sell.  We discovered our landlords had sold our building in 2003 without our knowledge.  We had the right to challenge that sale.  But first, we needed to form a tenants' association.

Our Mission

On January 18, 2006 "716 Madison Street Tenants' Association, Inc." was incorporated under the laws of the District of Columbia.  Our mission is to exercise our rights, help stabilize our neighborhood, and promote the personal and family values that are central to the well-being of our city.
