About Us

(People Against Landlord Abuse and Tenant Exploitation) organizes and empowers residents of New York City to hold negligent landlords and property managers accountable for unsafe living conditions through community advocacy, outreach, organizing effective tenant associations, and providing long-term technical assistance, connecting individuals and tenant groups to free or reduced-rate legal services and housing benefits.
