?You have the right to an attorney?: everyone is familiar with the Miranda Rights thanks to civics classes and television crime shows. However, Miranda rights only apply in serious criminal cases. There is no such constitutional right to legal representation in housing cases. In the book Evicted you learned about eight families as they struggle to keep a roof over their heads. Did you know 10,000 evictions are filed annually in Cleveland each year, and most of those people do not have assistance of counsel? Learn more about the Evicted-related problems in Northeast Ohio and legal solutions our community can work on together to solve one of 21st-century America?s most devastating problems.

This program is part of our One Community Reads series.
