The Project

As a lawyer, Harrison feels he has a special responsibility to advocate for those who do not have the resources to advocate for themselves, and believes that his passion and desire to help those in need makes him an effective advocate for tenants of RAD. As such, Harrison worked with, and advocated on behalf of, tenants of the Rent Assistance Demonstration (RAD) Project to help improve their communities, specifically by helping them to secure timely maintenance and repairs, and by assisting in tenants’ transitions from public housing to privately administered housing.
