Join San Luis Obispo Tribune reporter Lindsey Holden on Thursday, March 18, at 7 p.m. for a virtual panel discussion about rental housing in San Luis Obispo County.

“Paying the Rent: Q&A on Safe, Equitable Housing” will explore how conditions can be improved, what tenants should know about their rights, and more.

This event is supported by the USC Annenberg Center for Health Journalism.

Rental housing in San Luis Obispo County is expensive and challenging to find. This means many tenants live in rentals that are in bad condition, and they don’t know their rights or how to seek help. The COVID-19 pandemic has made things even harder for tenants, who are facing evictions and can’t afford to pay their rent.

Tune in to the Zoom event to ask questions, discuss solutions, and learn about resources.

Spanish-language translation will be available for this event.

Special guests will include:

  • Attorney Frank Kopcinski
  • Arroyo Grande Councilman Jimmy Paulding
  • Housing advocate Dona Price
  • Paso Robles Councilwoman Maria Garcia
  • Attorney Stephanie Barclay
  • Paulina Erdman of the Promotores Collaborative of San Luis Obispo County
