A discussion on housing advocacy careers, the right to counsel, offsetting gentrification, and the work done to change housing court culture.
New York City’s legislation guaranteeing the right to counsel for low-income tenants facing eviction has created many new housing jobs and drastically changed the world of housing advocacy. Join us for a conversation on several types of careers in housing, the cultural changes recently seen in housing practice, and the work that still must be done. We will be joined by the following NYLS alumni who have built a career in housing advocacy:
Catherine Barreda of Queens Legal Services Tenant Right’s Coalition
Jeanette Cepeda of Staten Island Legal Services
Samuel J. Himmelstein of Himmelstein, McConnell, Gribben, Donoghue & Joseph LLP

Sponsored by the Impact Center for Public Interest Law and the Housing Rights Clinic. This event is open to all NYLS students, faculty, and staff.
