Each year, on average, Baltimore City judicially evicts 7,000 families due to non-payment of rent. The Public Justice Center and the Right to Housing Alliance conducted a study to understand how renters fair when they defend themselves in the city’s “Rent Court.” We will present data from the study to show how the judicial process itself prioritizes landlords’ bottom line, at the expense of renters’ (94% of whom are Black and 80% of whom are women) stability and security. Join Right to Housing Alliance, Public Justice Center, Bristol House Tenant Association, and Jews United for Justice to discuss how the court’s systemic failure to ensure housing justice perpetuates housing insecurity among the city’s Black communities.
