Events & Trainings

LCBH hosts events and trainings to build support and awareness around the issues of affordable housing and access to justice.

Hops for Housing

Thank You for Attending Hops for Housing 2016

On behalf of Lawyers’ Committee for Better Housing, we want to thank everyone who attended Hops for Housing 2016. It was a huge success! With over 100 attendees, 211 pints consumed, and the support of our wonderful sponsors, we raised almost $2,000. Because of your generosity, LCBH can assist more Chicago renters facing housing instability due to issues like unfair evictions, foreclosed buildings, and poor housing conditions.

Annual Benefit

LCBH's 36th Annual Fall Benefit: Bringing Justice Home

We will be celebrating 30 years of the Residential Landlord and Tenant Ordinance with speakers Jack Kaplan, Director of Policy & Advocacy for United Way of Metropolitan Chicago and United Way Illinois, and David Orr, Cook County Clerk, who were instrumental in the early days of LCBH’s fight for housing justice so that everyone in Chicago can live in safe, decent, rental housing! The RLTO went a long way to provide tenants with important rights, but today, with the loss of so much affordable housing, families and neighborhoods are being torn apart by housing instability. We need to double down and grow our efforts because everyone deserves a safe, decent, affordable place to call home. You can help!

We will also honor this year's winner of the Barbara Grau Outstanding Housing Advocate award: Preserve Lathrop Housing. We hope to see you there!
