Two-Day RTC Lawyers and Advocates Training Program
Friday, October 29 + Thursday, November 4: 9:30AM-5:30PM
The Right to Counsel NYC Coalition invites you to this free two-day virtual training series for tenants’ advocates of all experience levels hosted by the Housing Justice Leadership Institute at New York Law School. The training will cover practice skills and aspects of our practice that are fundamental to implementing the right to counsel in housing court and supporting the tenant movement.
The program will include sessions on:
● The History of the Tenants' Rights Movement in NYC
● Political Economy of Housing
● Client Centered Representation
● Working with Clients with Mental Health Issues
● Vicarious Trauma and Advocate Care
● Organizing 101/Movement Lawyering
Sessions will be led by tenant advocates, organizers and tenant leaders from the Coalition's member organizations, including The Bronx Defenders, Flatbush Tenant Coalition, The Legal Aid Society, Legal Services NYC, Mobilization for Justice, TakeRoot Justice, and Urban Justice Center.
CLE credits will be offered. We also welcome tenants, organizers and other advocates to attend.
Participants can select individual sessions to attend, though we encourage everyone to join us for the full two-day program. Information on how to access the webinar will be provided via email closer to the webinar date.
