Webinar on Renters’ Rights, March 1

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
