NCCRC recognizes the eviction right to counsel movement's movers and shakers
01/14/2022, Miscellaneous, Housing - Evictions
Prior to 2017, no jurisdiction in the country provided a right to counsel for tenants facing eviction. But as we closed out 2021, there were 3 states and 13 cities with such a right, a testament to the incredible work of tenant organizers, legal services programs, community-based organizations, and others. And the movement is only picking up steam.
2022 promises to be another huge year, with activity in regions all over the country. But before that work begins, we invited speakers from across the country to help all of us recognize the immense progress and dramatic victories that have already propelled the movement forward.
We also put together a short but exciting video on the movement's accomplishments:
