Tiffany L. Hickey

Staff Attorney, Housing Rights Program

Tiffany Hickey is a staff attorney with the Housing Rights program at Advancing Justice–Asian Law Caucus. Tiffany joined ALC amid the COVID-19 pandemic, advocating for tenants’ rights and stronger protections against further displacement of the most vulnerable members of the community.

Prior to joining ALC, Tiffany represented subsidized housing tenants and SSI/SSDI claimants at Bay Area Legal Aid. She was actively involved in housing policy advocacy at local, state, and federal levels. Additionally she coordinated the law clerk program – creating training programs and supporting the supervision of law students in all practice areas.

Tiffany has been a passionate advocate for social justice before and during her legal career. She graduated from the University Of San Francisco School Of Law in 2013 and the Catholic Institute for Lasallian Social Action at Saint Mary’s College of California awarded her the Engaged SMC Alumnus Award in 2015. During law school, Tiffany advocated for the rights of children in detention through a position with UNICEF in the Kingdom of Cambodia and acted as Executive Editor of a social justice law journal.

Between 2007 and summer 2022, Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Asian Law Caucus published over 40 multilingual bulletins to fill a gap in the information older Californians living in San Francisco have about their rights and available support programs. In partnership with La Raza Centro Legal, Legal Assistance to the Elderly, and Asian Pacific Islander Legal Outreach, we published three bulletins a year covering important local, state, and federal issues. Previous articles have discussed everything from tenants’ rights to tips for avoiding scams to the importance of participating in the Census. Each edition of the bulletin is translated into Spanish and Chinese.

Starting fall 2022, La Raza Centro Legal is leading the development and distribution of senior rights bulletins to community members across the city. If you would like to distribute copies of the bulletin through your organization or order one for yourself, please reach out to Antonio Rodriguez at La Raza Centro Legal at antonio@lrcl.org.
