The North New Jersey DSA chapter has launched a right to counsel campaign for Jersey City tenants called Right to Counsel JC. The Hudson County View reported on the campaign's launch event, held on July 24th:
“’We are here to fight for the right to counsel in our city. We want to help ordinary people get the representation they need to fight back against developers and landlords when they are run out of their homes unfairly,’” NNJ DSA organizer Allie Howard said."
In New Jersey dot com, an opinion piece from a New Jersey City resident urged the passage of right to counsel, calling it a “moral imperative” and saying, “Housing should not be a commodity to be traded and speculated on, but a basic human right. A right to counsel places us in the right direction.”
The NCCRC is working to support North Jersey's DSA campaign.
