Private renters today pay more, with the least amount of security, and live in the worse conditions than their counter parts in other tenures. In this fascinating and powerful talk, Betsy Dillner shares the lessons she's learned in the ten years she has fought for social change and offers a way-out of the housing crisis: build relationships. Get to know your neighbours and band together.

Betsy Dillner is the Director of Generation Rent. Generation Rent is a campaigning organisation that fights for decent, affordable, professionally managed, and secure privately rented homes in sustainable communities. She has dedicated her career to building power of marginalised communities to campaign for a better future. Before moving to the UK she worked as a community organiser in the USA, engaging on various issues including housing, immigration, healthcare, and finance sector reform.
