Earlier this weekÂ I invited youÂ to join myself and the broadÂ coalitionÂ of leaders and organizations that have coalesced around the movement to expand representation in housing court, and help us make New York City the first jurisdiction in America to take such historic action.
Just today, theÂ New York TimesÂ Editorial Board recognized the importance of what we are trying to accomplish. The powerful editorial noted that â€œthere are few legal fights more lopsided thanÂ landlords suing to evict their lower-income tenants,â€ andÂ â€œensuring that the most vulnerable donâ€™t lose their homes is both the just and fiscally smart thing to do." I couldnâ€™t agree more with those sentiments.
Former New York State Chief Judge Lippman, NYC Comptroller Stringer, NYC Public Advocate Â James, Borough Presidents Brewer, Diaz and Adams, and dozens of city and state elected officials and advocacy groups have already signed up to show their support for the bill. Â Â Be part of this historic movement. RSVP to the hearing and press conference Monday, September 26th at 9:30amÂ hereÂ and sign up at ourÂ Facebook event page here.
