Housing rules and regulations are changing fast, with action on a local, State, and National level.  On January 22nd of this year, the NAACP San Diego Branch brought together housing advocates from various organizations to discuss who you can go to for help if you are threatened with eviction.  We recorded our Townhall for you to view any time.
