It’s not a level playing field between tenants and landlords in New York City. Join us for an evening of speakers, panels and presentations showcasing different ways to empower renters. We will also discuss strategies on how to collaborate our efforts, pack more of a collective punch, and stand up for the millions of New Yorkers who are being threatened with displacement.
Doors open at 6pm, speakers start at 7pm.
Light snacks and refreshments will be served.
This event is invite only and subject to capacity. Please RSVP as soon as possible.
