Legal Assistance

We established the monthly East Colfax Legal Clinic, connecting community members to free legal support to better protect residents from illegal evictions and landlord abuse. EC3 responded to a mass eviction in East Colfax, rallying media support, organizational partners, and community to find emergency housing for the evicted residents and supporting them through their rehousing process.
