Legal Support for Renters: How a Right to Counsel Can Improve Renters' Health
Thursday, September 8, 2022
About the Webinar: Evictions are a source of homelessness and housing instability, affecting physical safety and health, decreasing healthcare access, and increasing poor health outcomes. A Legal Support for Renters policy (also called a “right to counsel”) is an evidence-based, cost-effective approach that can help mitigate eviction harms, protect housing rights, and close health disparities. By addressing the representation gap, Legal Support for Renters policies help people at risk of eviction remain safe in their homes and avoid homelessness, keep their records free from evictions, and reduce rent debt. Join us on Sept. 8 for a webinar we're co-presenting with CityHealth, an initiative of the de Beaumont Foundation and Kaiser Permanente, on Legal Support for Renters policies. Learn from local leaders and experts about how this policy can decrease evictions, reduce homelessness, and promote better health.
