The National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty will hold a free webinar, “Housing Not Handcuffs: Preventing Homelessness by Protecting Renters’ Rights,” on March 1. The webinar will discuss best-practice housing laws and policies that address the underlying causes of homelessness rather than forcing homeless persons into the criminal justice system. Topics will include: civil right to counsel, just-cause eviction, rent-stabilization ordinances, and strategies for landlord engagement.
The webinar will be held on Wednesday, March 1 at 2:00 pm ET, 1:00 pm CT, noon MT, 11:00 am PT.
Speakers will include:
- Tristia Bauman, senior attorney, National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty
- Elisha Harig-Blaine, principal housing associate, National League of Cities
- John Pollock, staff attorney, Public Justice Center
- Daniel Saver, senior attorney, Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto
