ABOUT THE TEACH-IN: 

How can we use existing law to empower and protect tenants? Lawyers can and should work with community-based advocacy groups to bring about progressive systemic change with the goal of making affordable housing a right for everyone. Panelists Jeff Feuer and Lee Goldstein, both NLG lawyers, and moderator Urszula Masny-Latos will present on how to use housing law for the benefit of the people and how housing discrimination disproportionately affects women of color, especially single mothers.
