RTC Documentary

Join us HERE on 12/3 at 6:30pm EST for the worldwide premiere of our documentary film: "Our Rights! Our Power! The RTC Campaign to Fight Evictions in NYC!"

RSVP to receive an email reminder. The screening event will be broadcast live on this website. 

Watch our trailer:

At a moment when the threat of mass eviction is profoundly felt across the country, in the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, renters need real protections and real solutions. Follow the grassroots story of how low-income black and brown community members dreamed big, fought hard and eventually won the landmark Right to Counsel (RTC) legislation, guaranteeing  tenants the right to a free lawyer when facing eviction in housing court. As the first major city in the U.S. to pass it, this historic victory forever changes the landscape of gentrification, displacement and rampant landlord abuse in New York City.

On Thursday, December 3rd, we will share our campaign story, our victory and the concrete tools you can use to be able to initiate your own campaign for the Right to Counsel in your city! Hear from community members and organizers, ask questions and be part of the movement for housing justice and tenant power.

The documentary will be screened virtually, followed by a live panel of NYC leaders of the Right to Counsel movement, and will offer the opportunity to ask questions and connect with others. Join us for a dance party/celebration at the end! RSVP to receive a reminder, or just return to this page to participate in the event!
