The Project

Central Virginia is in the midst of a housing crisis. Public housing is being demolished and disappearing while the eviction rates in major cities, (Richmond, Petersburg) lead the nation. The project seeks to address the legal need of the residents by offering legal representation and education. It also seeks to work with legislatures to change and enact laws to help alleviate the meteoric eviction rates.

Daryl plans to address these issues by representing residents in housing matters before the Court, as well as engaging in a wide variety of outreach and education activities including conducting “Tenant’s Assertion” seminars for tenants in public, assisted, and tax credit housing developments in the Greater Richmond area;  engaging tenants in Tenant Town Halls for a more intensive look into tenant problems and desired solutions; and door-knocking in high eviction communities to get an understanding of the major concerns of residents.
