Task Force on Civil Right to Counsel

The Task Force was formed in the spring of 2018 to advocate for the most effective implementation of New York City's newly established right to counsel in eviction cases, to support the extension of that right to other jurisdictions and to advocate for the extension of the right to counsel in other civil matters where fundamental human needs are at stake.
