Public Justice Center, Inc.

Public Justice Center is leading a multi-year campaign to advocate for changes in laws and practices that limit tenants' rights and deny due process to tenants in Baltimore City's Rent Court.  In a December 2015 report on evictions in Baltimore entitled "Justice Diverted," PJC documented the high rate of evictions in Baltimore City, where more than one in 17 renter households is evicted each year. This grant supports PJC's Rent Court Reform and Eviction Prevention Initiative, which employs a combination of litigation, administrative advocacy, and legislative advocacy to advance the rights of tenants in Baltimore.
