Eviction Defense Response Team Training

  • Vine City Civic Association 678 Joseph E. Boone Boulevard Northwest Atlanta, GA, 30314 United States (map)

Are you looking for a way to get involved in sustained economic and racial justice organizing work? Join our Eviction Defense Infoline Response Team and help connect communities being hit with the eviction crisis to HJL’s Eviction Defense work! Children always welcome, light meal provided. RSVP on Facebook!

HJL is about to print our new Eviction Defense Manual. We have developed an outreach strategy to get the manual into the hands of people who need it most. Part of that outreach strategy is to have a phone line where people can leave messages requesting manuals and/or for HJL tenant leaders to come hold an information session in their community about resisting eviction and tenant organizing. This event will provide training on how to join the response team and connect renters to the work.

We are looking for people interested in becoming involved in a sustained way. This is because there is important information volunteers have to know and we need consistency in our responsiveness. The commitment would involve taking approximately one day a week as a voicemail responder. For more information on HJL Eviction Defense work visit housingjusticeleague.org/eviction-defense.
