In just under a week, we’ll take your rent questions — live!

Here’s your reminder to RSVP for our free virtual Open Newsroom event on Monday, March 21 at 6:30 p.m. and send us your questions.

We lined up three experts who know a lot about evictions, ERAP and housing issues of all kinds: Leah Goodridge, managing attorney for housing policy at Mobilization for Justice; Nakeeb Siddique, director for housing at the Legal Aid Society’s Brooklyn office; and Lakisha Morris, director of operations at Catholic Charities.

What do you want to ask them about your lease or living situation? In this off-the-record conversation, we want to hear from you and answer as many questions as we can as we cope with New York’s rent crisis.

The conversation will be moderated by THE CITY’s Rachel Holliday Smith, who writes the Rent Update newsletter and has authored numerous articles on the subject.

You can submit questions in advance by sending a note to

Will we see you on Monday? We hope so!
