The Homeless Prevention Team of the Charlotte ACLU, in cooperation with Legal Aid of North Carolina, will provide the programming for the ACLU’s general meeting on October 5th at Unitarian Universalist Church of Christ at 7:00 p.m. The Charlotte ACLU’s general meetings are open to the public and the public is encouraged to attend.
At the meeting, District Court Judge Rebecca Tin will present her perspective on the courtroom process where tenants at risk of losing their home must represent themselves without an attorney. Former Civil Rights Clinic member and current Legal Aid staff member, Isaac Sturgill, and Shanae Auguste from Legal Aid will join her in that presentation. They will show a film that depicts a woman facing eviction and how she prepares for her court appearance. Following the presentation will be a question and answer session.
