Rents are high, landlords want them to be higher. What can you do about it? This workshop is designed to help you answer that. Presenters will explain your rights as a tenant and discuss how you can get involved in your community to ensure that Los Angeles’ neighborhoods can remain accessible to all.

This event is facilitated by Jennifer Ganata with Navneet Grewal, Claudia Medina, Lorraine Lopez, Dianne Prado & Aimee Williams.

Prior to starting at ICLC, Jennifer had been a staff attorney at the Eviction Defense Network (EDN). Jennifer was born and raised in Los Angeles to immigrant parents. She has witnessed the different changes that have occurred in the city and as a result she has dedicated her work to ensuring that those who are marginalized in the city have a voice.

Jennifer received a JD from City University of New York (CUNY), where she was trained through the Adult Defender Clinical program and an LL.M from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) with a focus on Critical Race Studies.
