Workers' Dignity

Local advocate group Workers’ Dignity played a key role in organizing the tenants at Mosaic Apartments and a mobile home park on Dickerson Pike, two different low-income communities that recently received sudden eviction notices and decided to fight back. The workers’ center campaigned on social media, coordinated press conferences and scheduled meetings with Metro councilmembers. The mobile home residents successfully lobbied for more time to move, while Mosaic tenants managed to get written and public answers from the apartment complex’s tight-lipped management company, and most have been able to stay in place. While Workers’ Dignity is getting our Best of Nashville award, we imagine they’ll want to give all the credit to the tenants who refused to back down.
