- We need your help: urge Governor Polis to pass HB-1190
One of the bills that Colorado Poverty Law Project was most excited to support this year, House Bill 1190, is a first-of-its-kind legislation that would provide local governments with a more reasonable chance to purchase apartments as affordable housing. The issue this bill addresses is straightforward, but it requires a public policy correction: local government and housing authorities are trying to purchase and provide affordable housing, but they aren’t able to compete in the current market. When apartments are up for sale, they’re often purchased by corporate hedge funds, sign unseen without inspections or appraisals, and with cash, often in a week or less. These investors can do this because they raise rents by anywhere from 25-50%, immediately, and steadily higher in years to follow. This, in turn, contributes to evictions, displacement, loss of community connections, gentrification, and housing segregation. The beautiful balance struck in this bill is that it addresses a market deficiency, but also preserves fundamental property rights. This bill ultimately leaves a property owner in the driver’s seat, and it’s considerably less intrusive than other governmental powers, such as eminent domain. Under this bill, a property owner never has to sell unless they want to, or for a penny less than they want to—there’s nothing involuntary required. This legislation simply allows local governments to match the best offer a seller deems acceptable. It would empower mission-minded entities with a reasonable chance to compete in today’s market-- a chance to provide Coloradans with long term and deeply affordable housing. We thank the bill’s sponsors, Sen. Faith Winter, Sen. Sonya Jacquez Lewis, Rep. Andrew Boesenecker and Rep. Emily Sirota, and we thank Governor Polis for his consideration of signing this bill into law. We need your help to get this legislation across the finish line and signed into law! Please consider taking a minute to reach out to Governor Polis to express your support for this historic legislation. His office can be reached at Governorpolis@state.co.us or (303) 866-2471

While the Mobile Home Park Act gives many rights to mobile home residents, those rights are meaningless without access to justice. Taken a step further, these rights mean nothing if mobile home residents are unaware of them. That is what I see as CPLP’s purpose. We educate residents about their rights and facilitate access to justice and representation so residents can fulfill the rights provided to them by the Colorado legislature.” Contact David for inquires about CPLP’s Mobile Home Initiative (email@example.com ) Lauren Rafter Managing Attorney, CPLP Young Adult Team Leader Lauren's background is in working with young adults who have experienced trauma on a variety of legal and multidisciplinary issues and representing the best interests of children in civil protection order cases.

CPLP steps in--meeting people where they are at--to address the crises they are facing. We also work with community partners through education, policy, and legislation to stop those same crises from happening to others in the future so that one day soon all of our neighbors in Colorado may be free from the trauma of experiencing homelessness.” Contact Lauren with questions about getting legal assistance (firstname.lastname@example.org ) Olivia Kohrs Managing Attorney, CPLP Olivia uses her background in civil rights to inform how she provides client-centered legal guidance and resources to individuals fighting evictions.

CPLP provides community members with both the tools and the support to engage in these systems and advocate for their rights. By expanding access to justice and working to amplify community members' voices in these spaces, we can help individuals who are fighting for their homes feel heard and empowered, and let them know that they have someone in their corner."

Contact Christine (email@example.com ). Caitlin Finn Founder and Board Member, CPLP VP of Finance, Legal at Gary Community Ventures After graduating law school in 2014, Caitlin became CPLP’s first employee. Drawing on her deep roots in Denver and her skills as a network builder, Caitlin has forged strong relationships with key stakeholders and helped position CPLP as an important player in Denver’s pro bono ecosystem. “Bryan Stevenson often discusses the importance of proximity. Proximity is so important because if you’re not in contact with the things you’re passionate about, the causes you believe in, and the people you want to help, then you lose sight of why you’re doing it. You lose sight of who you are doing it for. So I think it’s super important, especially as attorneys, that we remember why we went to law school. A client once said to me ‘Thank you for advocating for me. Thanks for standing up for me. You believed in me, and no one else has before.’ Sometimes it’s just showing up with someone and walking through a portion of their life with them that matters.” Contact Caitlin (firstname.lastname@example.org ) Blair Kanis Founder and Vice President, CPLP General Counsel and Director of Sustainability, Cocona Labs Blair founded CPLP with Tom Snyder in 2013 to provide vulnerable Coloradans with legal representation through monthly pro bono legal clinics. As the leader of CPLP’s Mobile Home Initiative, Blair works to clarify and strengthen protections afforded by Colorado’s Mobile Home Park Act and guides CPLP’s pro bono work in the area of mobile home evictions and tenant rights. “I had a very clear sense of home growing up. My dad’s family had lived for generations on the farm where I grew up. But I realize that this situation is the outlier in America. That’s where this idea of housing justice really took hold for me. If you don't have safe and stable housing, you can’t build a strong, healthy, happy life. If you lose your housing, it’s like unraveling this web that everything was connected to. You don't have an address to send things to anymore. You are probably not living close to your job anymore. Your kids aren't in the same school or you may lose custody altogether. But if you can hold on, and stay in your housing, that provides the stability to hopefully keep the rest together.” Contact Blair with inquiries about CPLP’s Mobile Home Initiative ( email@example.com ) Tom Snyder Founder and President, CPLP Partner, Kutak Rock LLP Drawing on his expertise as a trial attorney, Tom serves as an advisor on litigation and legal strategy for CPLP volunteers. He is instrumental in the creation of CPLP’s Continuing Legal Education courses, and regularly provides pro bono services to CPLP clients on a range of housing justice issues. "Advocating for these individuals is extremely rewarding. To interview somebody, coalesce their circumstances into a single legal issue, summarize it for them to show that you understand, carry that to a court or an adversary, and resolve the problem which seemed so impossible to them, it’s really powerful and true to the occupation of an attorney." Contact Tom with inquires about Continuing Legal Education courses (firstname.lastname@example.org ) Lisa Scalpone Chief Financial Officer, CPLP Lisa Scalpone is a technology executive who joined CPLP’s board to provide financial and administrative guidance as the organization entered a period of sustained growth. Her strong background in corporate law and business strategy enables the team to maximize its work with clients in need. “One could argue helping people stay in their homes is one of the most fundamental things you can do for a person. Our mental stability and our happiness is closely linked to having a place to go home to every night. It's a truly scary prospect to be faced with an eviction court proceeding all alone. CPLP provides that safety net so our fellow community members in need are not alone. You are with someone the whole way, who knows the law and who wants to help you. I'm proud to be a part of such an important organization. Kevin M. McGreevy Senior Advisor, CPLP Criminal Defense, Ridley, McGreevy, Winocur Kevin worked for six years as a public defender in Denver before joining a private firm, and has the honor of being CPLP’s first board member. He has utilized his experience as a litigator to guide many vulnerable Colordans through legal challenges over the years and regularly volunteers at CPLP’s monthly legal clinic. “There are a lot of reasons I think people should care about the Colorado Poverty Law Project, but most of them boil down to this one basic thing. It makes our community stronger. Caring for one another, making sure all who are subjected to the justice system have someone that can give them access to resources or an understanding of where they are so they are not mistreated. Even if you are vulnerable, uneducated, or suffering from mental illness, we’re not going to allow for exploitation of those issues in our justice system. It just builds our community as a whole.” Partners CPLP is grateful to all the partners who make our work possible, including donors who support our work, volunteers who give their time, service providers with whom we collaborate, and community organizations that help us reach and support those in need of assistance.
