Action Alert: Sign the MAAPL Petition to Extend the Eviction Moratorium
The CDC’s federal moratorium on evictions is scheduled to expire in just a couple of days on July 31, 2021. If this happens, thousands of families and individuals will lose their housing even while COVID-19 rates continue to rise. People of color have been disproportionately affected by both the COVID-19 pandemic and the foreclosure and eviction crisis, so BIPOC communities stand to be severely impacted by the lifting of the eviction moratorium.
We must act NOW and urge CDC Director Walensky to extend the moratorium again. The FHFA has already extended its moratorium in the face of increasing COVID rates, and the CDC must act to do the same to protect all American homeowners and tenants. Congress and the U.S. Senate must also take legislative to keep the moratorium in place to avoid worsening the impact of the latest wave of COVID cases on families and communities across the country.
Please take action and sign our Change.org petition to address this urgent situation!
After you sign the petition, please share this link widely! Help us get as many signatures as possible. Thank you!
