Half-Hour Huddle: Protecting commercial tenants in the age of coronavirus

We’re compiling resources so communities can take action and support our beloved small businesses as they renegotiate commercial leases and protect against eviction. During this half-hour huddle, we will:

Share resources (15 mins): We’ll share about eviction moratoriums adopted by cities, sample letters to landlords, tips on renegotiating rent payments, and more.

Take questions (15 mins): Staff and volunteer lawyers from the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights will take your questions.

OPTIONAL: Organize volunteers (15 mins): For anyone who wants to stay afterward, we’ll be seeking volunteers willing to dedicate anywhere from 3 to 20 hours each in coming months to continue to gather and update resources, since resources are changing and being updated every day! In the last 15 minutes, we’ll hear about volunteer interest, divvy up tasks, and make plans to follow up.

The Sustainable Economies Law Center is co-hosting this event with Legal Services for Entrepreneurs, an economic justice and community empowerment project of the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights. LSE was founded in 1997 by attorneys who recognized that a small business’s long-term viability may be jeopardized when it forgoes legal assistance on fundamental business matters. LSE provides free transactional legal services to low-income individuals who want to start or develop businesses, businesses committed to investing in economically distressed communities, including hiring people with arrest and conviction records, and mom and pop shops located in areas where gentrification is a force for displacement.
