Children’s Law Center has successfully partnered with the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) throughout the last year on issue areas including improving housing conditions for low-income tenants and also on addressing human trafficking in the District. CLC has benefited from the knowledge, skill, and compassion shown to our tenant clients by OAG staff, particularly the Public Advocacy Division Social Justice Unit. Our attorneys work with the OAG when our clients live in multi-unit buildings that are in serious disrepair, and the OAG’s excellent work in receivership cases on behalf of DC tenants has helped ensure safe and healthy housing for our clients. CLC policy attorney Elizabeth Oquendo shared our hopes for sustained communication and partnership with the OAG during her oversight testimony.
