The Project

At the National Housing Law Project, I work to enforce survivors’ housing rights under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and the Fair Housing Act in the Bay Area. My project focuses on increasing awareness of VAWA’s protections; developing policies that address the needs of survivors; and improving compliance by public housing agencies and subsidized landlords. Through training of advocates, collaboration with housing providers and policy advocacy on the local, state and national level, my goal is to strengthen housing protections for survivors.
