Why we are releasing this list:
Right to Counsel is powerful. After one year of implementation, evictions are down, landlords are suing people less and almost everyone who had an attorney through RTC stayed in their homes.
But housing court is still a battleground and landlord threats and intimidation shouldn't be underestimated. There are 345,000 renter households in RTC zip codes who have a right to know about the new law. Yet most of them don't. Many are intimidated from using it.
Right now, about 20 neighborhoods have RTC as the first part of the 5 year phase in. The city chose these neighborhoods in part because they have some of the highest rates of eviction. That means that these neighborhoods are under attack and that a prominent weapon is eviction in housing court . The narrative is too often about people being evicted. It should be about the people doing, and profiting from, evictions. Who is evicting the families in these neighborhoods? Join us to protest some of the worst evictors in NYC!
Tenants, stand up, use RTC, organize and fight back! We you fight, we all win together.
