Thank you for making our voice at City Council's public hearing yesterday so powerful!
After more than 7 hours of testimony, close to 80 people testified in support of our bills to expand the Right to Counsel! We made sure our voices were heard in various forms—our #ExpandRTC hashtag even trended on Twitter!
To top it all off, the Community Service Society released a report yesterday finding that evictions are down 29% in zip codes where RTC is currently in effect and recommending that the city expand this important right! Read the report here.
Make sure to also check out this powerful piece by The City, an op-ed by DC 37, and all the other press coverage of the hearing here.
