What is a Right to Counsel?

Right to counselLos Angeles is experiencing an eviction crisis, one which is forcing working-class residents out of their neighborhoods, out of the city, and in many cases onto the street. It is a displacement crisis, a homelessness crisis, an equity crisis, and an affordable housing crisis. The implications of large-scale evictions have created a children’s crisis, a workers’ crisis, an immigrant crisis, and a racial justice crisis.

Right to Counsel is a national movement to support every tenant’s right to defend their home. The Right to Counsel Coalition – LA supports efforts to bring a codified right to counsel and eviction protection to Los Angeles.
