Human Right to Housing

Millennial female black woman fills out a form at a table.

Everyone should have a place to call home. Yet renters face many challenges to securing stable, safe, and affordable places to live:

The Human Right to Housing Project takes on these challenges. We stand with tenants to protect and expand their rights to safe, habitable, affordable, and non-discriminatory housing and their rights to fair and equal treatment by Maryland’s landlord-tenant laws, courts, and agencies. We defend renters facing eviction, demand repair of unsafe housing conditions, and represent renters seeking systemic relief from predatory landlord practices. We advocate to change the law regarding evictions and to demand the development of equitable and sustainable affordable housing.

If you are a renter looking for legal assistance, call us at (410) 625-9409 or visit our Get Legal Help page for more information.
