We're launching our Statewide Right to Counsel campaign!
Introduced by Assembly Member Latoya Joyner and Senator Rachel May, our Statewide Right to Counsel legislation would ensure that every tenant across New York State has the right to a lawyer when facing an eviction.
JOIN US for a statewide campaign launch on June 3rd at 3:00pm in Syracuse and The Bronx.
Facebook Live: Unable to come in person? Tune in at www.facebook.com/RTCNY. You do not need to have a Facebook account to watch the livestream!
The Statewide Right to Counsel legislation is a part of the Housing Courts Must Change! (HCMC) Campaign, a statewide campaign launched in 2020 to transform the courts from an “eviction machine” to a place that upholds tenants’ rights, holds landlords accountable, and enables tenants to remain in their homes. Our goals, during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, include slowing down eviction cases and expanding Right to Counsel across New York State, so ALL tenants have and know about their rights and are emboldened to organize and fight to stop evictions.
