John Pollock explains that white lawyers traditionally were the "face" of tenant and eviction advocacy. He explains that is changing. Indeed, Black womxn are disproportionately impacted by evictions @evictionlab @NLCHPhomeless
listening to @AmandaAndere discuss that we cannot have a conversation regarding rent, evictions, and housing stability without centering anti-racist work. She asks "how are the actions that you are taking grounded in the racialized history" of the country @NLCHPhomeless
"Congress should immediately pass a uniform national moratorium on evictions for the duration of this public health crisis...every day that Congress waits is putting more people at risk" @SarahMickelson1
Today rent is due again for millions of Americans who have been laid off from their employment & are struggling to make ends meet. Join us at 2pm as we discuss protecting renters, preventing #homelessness, and covid-19.
On July 1, rent will be due again for millions of Americans who have been laid off from their employment and are struggling to make ends meet.
Eviction moratoria have provided temporary relief for some renters, but those limited protections are now expiring and renters are increasingly in danger of losing their homes. Without action, large increases in homelessness are likely.
This is why many in the homelessness sector are calling for #RentReliefNow, to prevent a pandemic of evictions on top of the #COVID19 pandemic.
Because the unemployment crisis has disparately affected Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and other communities of color, and because these communities make up a disproportionate number of renters, preventing eviction is a matter of racial justice as well.
Join us Wednesday, July 1, 2020, to learn how to prevent homelessness among renters during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
