Learn about your rights as a tenant and a worker in context of covid-19 in our online workshop. Stephanie will cover topics such as eviction notices, paying rent, inspections, repairs, and harassment from your landlord. She will also discuss your rights as a worker, including when you can refuse unsafe work, sick leave, and leaves of absence.
We know that countless people in our community, many of them artists and freelancers, are experiencing greater precarity in their housing and employment situations right now. There will be an opportunity to ask your specific questions during this workshop.
