Seizing the power of this moment, a growing number of communities are passing right to civil counsel laws to help tenants fight unfair evictions. We have some wins, but we have a long way to go. We need more wins, for more tenants, in more places. That means we need a much bigger bench of supporters and advocates. 


Because a right to counsel, like so many other issues in this country, is interwoven with issues of race, having thoughtful, strategic conversations about race and racism is the only way for us to draw forward the new champions we need.


That’s why TheCaseMade, the National Coalition for a Civil Right to Counsel, and New York Law School worked together to provide you with Building Support for a Civil Right to Counsel by Anchoring Your Case in Racial Justice. This resource sets out a framework and sample language you can use as you navigate those critical conversations, so we can all get closer to justice. 


Please join us on Tuesday, May 21, at 2pm ET for a webinar to learn about this amazing new resource.
