Trying to prevent evictions one door knock at a time

Renters facing eviction in Cleveland, Ohio are receiving home visits from members of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). They hand out pamphlets informing the residents of their options, their rights, and the repercussions of having an eviction notice on their file. Some tenants weren't even informed of the eviction until DSA members showed up at their doorstep. DSA also connected people with resources that could help keep them in their homes such as rental-assistance programs and Cleveland's Right to Counsel program offering free legal aid.
