Justice for Tenants

Some of the housing justice organizers from Central Jersey DSA attended a Cancel Rent Rally in Newark and met a tenant who was dealing with an especially egregious landlord. The tenant has lived in Newark all her life and has had to deal with many landlords and has taken a lot of steps to fight back. At her current home, the landlord is non-profit company that has many open code enforcement violations.

A local lawyer and activist can take on the case for all the tenants if we can raise some funds. This is also an opportunity for tenants to talk to each other about what they've been experiencing and what other steps they want to take to fight back. New Jersey has an eviction moratorium until the end of March, but landlords have been filing the paperwork so that they can evict thousands of people in every city when the moratorium ends.
