Lakisha Briggs was nearly evicted from her home for involving the police one too many times when her boyfriend tried to beat her.
That’s because cities and towns nationwide are passing "nuisance ordinances." These measures force landlords to evict tenants who are involved in disorderly behavior – even if they are victims of domestic violence.
No one should face homelessness for calling the cops to stop domestic violence! Sign our open letter calling for the repeal of nuisance ordinances so that women like Lakisha aren’t punished for calling the police.
