Housing is a human right: Law reform and community organizing in Baltimore
Justice for Breakfast discussion series
The Public Justice Center's Human Right to Housing Project is bridging law reform and community organizing through a new grassroots partnership in Baltimore’s Park Heights neighborhood. Using a human rights framework, PJC and its partners are connecting tenant evictions and mortgage foreclosures to the larger context of community economic development. Please join us to discuss innovations and challenges to building community-based political power among tenants and homeowners alike. PJC attorneys will also discuss this spring's legislative efforts to end unlawful lockouts, utility shut-offs, and source-of-income discrimination in the rental housing market.
