That was how ACORN were introduced in a piece on BBC2’s Victoria Derbyshire Show yesterday, who ran a great feature on the growth of ACORN up and down the country. See the videos here:
Part one, an action-packed, fifteen minute feature unmasked the human stories at the heart of the housing crisis, and ACORN’s community-powered response.
It showed ACORNs taking-on slum landlords in Bristol, bullying landlords in Sheffield, and members growing the movement up and down the country, one door knock at a time.
It was ACORNS first major national TV coverage, showing that, not only is the union winning battles, but also raising the, confidence, hope and expectations of UK tenants.
