Don’t miss this four-part series that explores the housing access injustices suffered by individuals and families facing economic challenges across the spectrum and how their communities are being devastated. Part 2 in this series examines a number of housing issues, including:
Housing rights for victims of domestic and sexual violence;
“Ban the Box” laws and background checks designed to screen out undesirable tenants;
How the abuse of due process rights by landlords can lead to rejection of eligible applicants and eviction of tenants;
When landlords can legally exercise their rights to evict tenants;
What remedies wrongfully-evicted tenants can pursue;
Current efforts to educate the public about the legal remedy of expungement; and
How the displacement of families from housing affects the quality of life for those families.
