CASA/New Settlement KNOW YOUR RIGHTS workshops


CASA/New Settlement in northern Manhattan, the Bronx, and Westchester, is having a 
"KNOW YOUR RIGHTS" series of workshops in English and Spanish:

From CASA/New Settlement Apartments’ Community Action for Safe Apartments:

CASA is excited to announce our SECOND Know Your Rights Workshops Series!  Last year, we educated over 114 Bronx Tenants, with 65 tenants receiving legal advice! Thank you for all of your support to make these workshops a success.

The workshops cover a wide range of housing issues, as well as education and the police.  Every time there is a workshop, there will also be a housing legal clinic, made possible by the Urban Justice Center, Bronx Legal Services, New York Lawyers for the Public Interest and The Legal Aid Society.  

Any Bronx tenant  with a housing question is welcome—though we are asking that they RSVP so that we can ensure to have enough lawyers present.

Our first workshop in this series, Know Your Rights and Responsibilities as a Rent Stabilized Tenant, is THIS Saturday, October 27th, from 11am-2pm at 35 Marcy Place.  Please see the attached flyers and calendar of workshops/legal clinics.  Please forward widely!
