Legal Aid Justice Center engages in community advocacy and support to fight for tenants’ rights in Central Virginia. We partner with tenant-based community organizations to provide organizing and advocacy in fighting mass eviction, building community power, and advancing racial justice in housing. We also represent individuals in their efforts to access and maintain decent, safe, and affordable housing. In Richmond, our staff is part of a pilot program for Housing Justice coordinating with other legal aid programs to pursue state and local policy advocacy as well as broad-based individual representation for tenants in the Greater Richmond Area.
