Public Justice Center, Inc.

The Public Justice Center (PJC) is a nonprofit, legal services, and advocacy organization that addresses social justice, economic and race equity, and fundamental human rights for individuals in Maryland. With funding from the Abell Foundation, PJC has led a multi-year campaign to research and advocate for changes in laws and practices that limit tenants' rights and deny due process in eviction cases in Baltimore City's rent court.  As a member of the Renters United Maryland coalition, PJC has been advocating for a legal right to counsel for tenants facing eviction.  This grant will fund a study of the cost-effectiveness of providing counsel to tenants in eviction cases in Baltimore City.
