 Fighting the City as Landlord:

Defending Public Housing Residents in NYCHA Administrative Termination Proceedings


Thursday, October 4, 2012   6 p.m. to 9:15 pm

Cardozo School of Law  55 Fifth Ave., Room 424   New York, NY

 Interested in learning how to defend public housing residents in New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) administrative termination of tenancy (i.e. eviction) proceedings? How about organizing to change these proceedings? Yes? Yes! Join us for this training, open to all lawyers, legal workers, law students, and organizers!

Every year, tens of thousands of public housing residents are at risk of losing their affordable housing through NYCHA termination proceedings. Almost none of these residents have any form of representation. This CLE will enable lawyers, law students, and legal workers to learn the basics of these proceedings and to begin providing such representation to public housing residents in the future.

 Speakers/trainers include:

  • Wasim Lone, Director of Housing Services, Good Old Lower East Side (GOLES)
  • Afua Atta-Mensah, Supervising Attorney, Homelessness Outreach and Prevention Project (HOPP) at the Urban Justice Center
  • Avery McNeil and Joe Wong , 3L Law Students, New York University School of Law
