Kendall worked with community organizers to form and support strong tenant associations that will effectively advocate for their own safe, healthy, and affordable housing.
More than 1.7 million low-income families across the country could lose their homes over the next five years because of expiring HUD mortgages and Section 8 contracts. Many of these are Arkansas families.
If you want to use the law as a tool to fight poverty, then lawyers need to learn how to collaborate with organizers and low-income communities so that their work improves the lives of the most people possible.
