Welcome to the East Palo Alto Council of Tenants (EPACT) website! EPACT was established in 1981 and has been the only city-wide group devoted to advocacy on behalf of tenants and tenants' issues. With its educational adjunct EPACT Education Fund, founded in 1989, EPACT and EPACT Education Fund aim to mobilize and assist tenants to defend the rights of the tenant community in East Palo Alto, prevent unlawful evictions, and ensure affordable, safe, and habitable living conditions for low-income residents. Currently as a non-staffed and all-volunteer organization, we hope that, with your help, we'll continue to serve the community as relentlessly as we have the past 20 years.
