ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - The Atlanta Economic Justice Program is trying to help people who are still reeling from the pandemic.

They are offering a step-by-step guide titled “How to Defend Your Home” that’s intended to help people who may be facing eviction or living in less than ideal conditions or dealing the landlord harassment.

Housing advocates are hoping that people will learn they have power during what can feel like an altogether powerless situation.

“There is this idea that, it must be your fault if you’re being evicted. It must be your fault if you are homeless. It must be your fault if you can’t afford your rent and that it is not true,” said Foluke Nunn with the Atlanta Economic Justice Program, ”Being housing insecure, losing your housing is not a moral failing.”
