Mission Statement

To increase access to justice for low-income people by providing low cost legal services and education on legal rights in housing and immigration. We aggressively defend the rights of tenants to the safety and security of their home as a base for them to prosper, advance, and contribute positively to society as a whole. We defend tenants. We stop unlawful evictions. We prevent homelessness.

Description

BASTA was founded in 2004 by Danny Bramzon, the son of a Mexican immigrant who graduated from Stanford University and the University of Chicago Law School. Mr. Bramzon learned that many landlords ignored state and local laws and wrongfully evicted tens of thousands of families every year and forced many other families to live in slum conditions in violation of state and local health and safety laws that causes significant health issues for the tenants. BASTA arose to remedy these injustices.
