The Right to Counsel NYC Coalition began in June of 2014. We began as a coalition of advocates, tenants, academics and legal services providers in support of right to counsel for low-income tenants who face eviction in New York City.
* All donations made to Right to Counsel NYC Coalition will be sent to their fiscal sponsor Fund for the City of New York.
As a Coalition, our main goal is to make sure that people stay in their homes and communities with dignity and respect and for housing court to be a place where justice is applied equitably. We believe that Right to Counsel for tenants is a key piece in making that goal a reality.
