Defending Renter’s Rights
LUCHA represented a rental client as she fought for her rights under the Keep Chicago Renting Ordinance. The client’s landlord failed to inform the renter that the property was under foreclosure, and through no fault of her own, the client was forced to move due to the foreclosure process. Through LUCHA’s representation, the client was awarded $10,600 in moving assistance – money she was able to use to help her family regain housing stability!
Advocating for Affordable Housing
The LUCHA Law Project is part of the “525 Task Force – a coalition of housing leaders which advocated for the addition of 525 public housing units as part of the redevelopment plan for the Lathrop Homes in 2016. This coalition was able to influence the Chicago Housing Authority to include more units than they originally fought for. As a result, Lathrop Homes will include 524 family public housing units and an additional 105 public housing units.
