The Houston Eviction Solidarity Network is a project of the Texas Housers Houston office. It’s inspired by the Eviction Solidarity Network created by our partners BASTA! in Austin. Eviction Solidarity Network aims to do a few things:
- Reduce the shame and stigma associated with evictions by being a visible and supportive presence in virtual and in-person courtrooms.
- Conduct a lay courtwatch to ensure that judges are treating those facing eviction fairly and checking all their boxes.
- Humanize a complex, systemic problem and uplift tenant stories (anonymously or with permission).
