Tu casa, tu derecho. This slogan will frame our efforts throughout the end of the year, as we encourage legal empowerment to fight foreclosures. As Puerto Rico - and the world- get impacted by a more lethal COVID-19 wave, families are facing the risk of losing their homes. Examining court records, we found out that more than 720 new foreclosure procedures have been presented between January and the end of July 2021. As we approach the peak of the hurricane season, housing insecurity threatens the possibility of dignified living on the Island. Derecho a tu casa has been working non-stop to promote narrative shifts, create innovative legal support/advocacy tools, and provide accompaniment to people at risk of foreclosures.

During this semester we

  • Promoted and nurtured our risk detector tool known as "Conoce tu riesgo" which permits people to self-assess their risk level regarding foreclosure and learn more about available resources and services.
  • Created media campaigns to promote the network of organizations that provide free legal support to people in need
  • We are creating a database of the people we accompany to integrate them in self-defense and advocacy efforts designed to help and support families at risk of foreclosures.
  • We are launching - SOON, see picture for a sneak peek- a media campaign that will help us shift the narrative and address how the impact of foreclosure disparately impacts the elderly and women in Puerto Rico.

Stay tuned. We need you on our side. Please continue supporting Ayuda Legal Puerto Rico. You can learn more about our efforts against foreclosures at derechoatucasa.org
