To reduce poverty and advocate for safe housing by organizing, educating, and empowering residents. We are committed to supporting communities and to preserving our quality of life, our health, and our personal safety by assisting tenants when their rights have been violated and by holding unresponsive property owners accountable.
WHAT we do
P.A.’L.A.N.T.E. (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.
P.A.’L.A.N.T.E.’s goal is to end tenant exploitation in order to enable low-income community residents to remain in their homes and to ensure that those homes are safe and affordable.
