Philly Eviction Crisis - Public Hearing: March 20

Authored By: Community Legal Services of Philadelphia


Philadelphia City Council will be holding a hearing on the Eviction Crisis & related issues on March 20 from 1:00 pm-4:00 pm. The hearing is free and open to the public.

Every year, tens of thousands of Philadelphians face eviction. And many of these people--mostly single mothers, people of color, and people living in poverty--must fight with no legal support.

Evictions aren't just an effect of poverty--they are a leading cause as well. Not only can evictions intensify poverty, they can also create it.

That's why Philadelphia City Council is holding a hearing to examine the issues facing Philly renters whose lives are upended by substandard housing, eviction, and homelessnes with a goal of mapping out a framework for protecting and supporting low-income renters.
