The Project

Sloan will work with the Housing Attorney Fellow at Appleseed to provide and connect tenants with legal aid, resources, community organizations, and tools for advocacy within their communities.

Tenants and low-income people in the Midlands are struggling with rising rent prices and a severe rental home shortage. Approximately 27% of rental households are extremely low income throughout the state.

Sloan will work to address these issues by conducting outreach with grassroots organizations working with tenants and the unhoused throughout eight counties in South Carolina. She will grow relationships with groups working on the ground to help with the housing and rental crises that the area faces. Sloan will also provide public information, educational sessions, and workshops focused on tenants’ rights, evictions, and other legal aid advice.

Fellowship Plans

Sloan will provide resources and support for tenant-led advocacy groups in low-income housing complexes though community organizations partnerships, distributed organizing outreach, educational sessions, and legal aid.

Sloan’s knowledge of reproductive justice, prison abolition, and housing liberation has informed so much of her advocacy and how she approaches community organizing.

Sloan is passionate about organizing, mutual aid, and social justice education. She’s been able to build strong connections and relationships with community non-profit organizations in the Columbia area over the past four years. Sloan approaches housing justice from a people-focused, abolitionist lens and will continue to leverage her positionality and resources to assist and support the tenants’ rights movements.

I am excited to continue building up and supporting people power movements for housing justice and beyond.
