The COVID-19 pandemic has cost people their jobs and livelihoods. The Right to Counsel Coalition of Los Angeles (RTCLA) is fighting to ensure that everyone has legal representation in housing court. 90% of landlords have representation when they go to housing court compared to only 12% of tenants. RTC seeks to balance that. If you know someone that needs tenant educational resources or access to legal advice, encourage them to sign up.

COVID-19 Guidelines for Co-Sheltering Environments
People experiencing homeless may be at higher risk for exposure to COVID-19 due to the lack of options for self-isolation and social distancing. It is therefore essential at this time that all social services be made available to people experiencing homelessness with companion animals. Especially during this time of uncertainty and fear related to COVID-19, we believe that positive outcomes for people and animals are better achieved by keeping these families intact.
