Did you know that 90% of tenants facing eviction do not have legal representation, while 90% of landlords do?
Los Angeles is experiencing an eviction crisis that is forcing working-class residents out of their neighborhoods, out of the city, and, in many cases, onto the street. In turn, this eviction crisis is causing a homelessness crisis, an equity crisis, and an affordable housing crisis in our city. Evictions disproportionately affect mothers and children, immigrants, and people of color.
Right to Counsel is a national movement that demands that tenants have a right to a lawyer if they are ordered to appear in eviction court. The Los Angeles Right to Counsel Coalition supports efforts to bring a codified Right to Counsel and eviction protection to Los Angeles County residents.
