The Project

This project seeks to preserve affordable housing on Atlanta’s Westside by preventing displacement and improving substandard living conditions. The representation of low-income tenants in Atlanta’s Vine City, English Avenue, Ashview Heights and Atlanta University Center neighborhoods who face unlawful evictions and have unresolved conditions and repairs issues.

In the first six months, Erik will:

  • Conduct community outreach
  • Establish regular Know-Your-Rights clinics
  • Obtain the buy-in from community partners to help spread the work
  • Attain a few “big wins” to help build trust


On Second Thought - The Fair Housing Act
