Event description
People's Tribunal On Evictions

About this Event

In NYC, landlords try to legally and forcibly evict hundreds of thousands of people every year. It's time we put them on trial for the eviction crisis in NYC.

Join tenants from across the city, and members of the Right to Counsel NYC Coalition as we put landlords and the government on trial for their role in the eviction crisis.

The main tribunal events will take place from 5-9pm. There will also be a tenants' rights/info fair beginning at 3pm.

Schedule for the Tribunal:

  • 3-5pm: Tenant Info, Resource Fair and Legal Clinic*
  • 5-6:15pm: Welcome, Presentation of Demands, Launch of the Eviction Defense Network
  • 6:15-7pm: Prepared Testimony. Tenants who live in buildings owned by the worst evictors, will testify against their landlords.
  • 7pm-8:30pm: Open testimony--any tenants present can give testimony about their landlords.
  • 8:30-9pm: Jury Issues Indictments, Call to Action and Closing

*The legal clinic will run all night.
