Back to All Legislation

Letter to Lawmakers on the Right to Counsel for New Yorkers Facing Eviction

The NYCLU wrote to the New York State Assembly and Senate to urge to the passage of the statewide Right to Counsel legislation (A7570/ S6678) this session. This legislation would guarantee all New York State tenants at or below 80 percent of Area Median Income the Right to Counsel when facing an eviction. New York State’s already devastating eviction crisis will only get worse if we don’t enact permanent solutions that strengthen tenants’ rights and empower tenants to fight for their homes.

As bold as the spirit of New York, we are the NYCLU.
