In Delaware, 86% of landlords have representation from attorneys or agents in court, but only 2% of tenants have representation. Delaware has an opportunity to level the playing field by securing the right to counsel for eviction defense statewide.

Right now the Delaware state legislature is considering a bill, SB 101, that would provide renters with a right to counsel for eviction defense. Right to counsel is critical to fighting mass evictions and securing safe, stable housing for all Delawareans. Can you send an email to ask your state legislative leaders to support this bill?
