WMU-Cooley Professor Florise Neville-Ewell will host the District of Columbia community forum Tenants’ Eviction Rights on Wednesday, June 9 at 7 p.m. Neville-Ewell is the host of the Housing Gap Podcast, a podcast dedicated to educating tenants and homeowners.
During the virtual discussion, D.C. Attorney General Karl A. Racine and prominent housing attorneys and community advocates from the D.C area will share important steps that those advocating for tenants being evicted should know. The forum will include: a basic overview of the eviction process and changes due to the pandemic; areas of prevention and help, which includes how to prepare a case and strategies to avoid eviction, and temporary financial resources; and next steps to prepare for anticipated changes after the pandemic.
In conjunction with being the founder of the Ten Commandments of Real Estate Law Society (10CORE Law Society), a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to educating the public through outreach, Neville-Ewell remains dedicated to providing substantive town hall meetings for the public with law students and volunteer lawyers. The 10CORE Law Society has provided outreach in Michigan, Florida, Georgia and Maryland. It is in the process of expanding nationally to bridge the gap between the public and providing access to justice through legal literacy.
