On paper, tenants in NYC have A LOT of rights. We can thank past and present tenant organizers for that. Knowing your rights can help protect tenants in the face of adversity – be it government neglect, tenants harassment, or otherwise. This booklet, designed with NYCHA tenants in mind, can help us all better understand and exercise our rights.
Below is a one-pager we, the Justice For All Coalition use for outreach. It includes a section specific to public housing residents.
We also have a booklet that offers more information and detail on tenants’ rights.
