About the PSA
Landlords resorting to harassment and other aggressive tactics to try and push out long-term or low-income tenants is nothing new in New York City. But now, it is illegal. This PSA from the Coalition Against Tenant Harassment (CATH) aims to educate residential tenants about what is considered harassment under new city-wide legislation and empower them to fight back and take action against it.
About the Client

CATHnyc is comprised of community organizations from around the City who are fighting against the displacement of low-income tenants through grassroots organizing and by promoting new tools to prevent tenant harassment.
CATHnyc is housed within the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD). ANHD’s mission is to build community power to win affordable housing and thriving, equitable neighborhoods for all New Yorkers.
