WORKSHOP: CITY AND STATE LAWS BEHIND CODE ENFORCEMENT
What all tenant advocates should know
The proper enforcement of the laws that are meant to protect housing
standards in NYC is a primary concern for tenant organizers and advocates.
What are these laws and how can a tenant advocate use them most effectively?
This workshop will provide a basic overview of what all advocates who work
with tenants to improve building conditions and services need to know. How,
for example, is the right to organize protected by law? What is the

considered in buildings affected by mortgage foreclosures?
