Action Alert: Vote in Boston Globe Poll to Extend the Moratorium!

An article in today’s Boston Globe (September 12, 2020) asks readers an important question: Should Massachusetts extend its eviction moratorium for another year? The article features pro and con opinion pieces from Rep. Mike Connolly, co-lead sponsor of the bill to extend the moratorium, and Skip Schloming, the Director of the Small Property Owners Association, respectively.

A reader poll asking whether the moratorium should be extended can be found at the bottom of the article. The No votes are now ahead, so we need people to show their support for a moratorium!

Please vote in the poll and support extending the moratorium on evictions and foreclosures! Voting is still open on Sunday, September 13th.

Let’s make it clear—Massachusetts needs an extended moratorium!


The Mass. Alliance Against Predatory Lending (MAAPL) is a coalition of over 60 housing counseling agencies, legal services groups, social service agencies, and community-based social action groups that have joined together to address the foreclosure crisis in Massachusetts. MAAPL collects and distributes timely information on the foreclosure crisis and its effects to the public and to its member groups, drafts and supports legislation that provides important protections to homeowners and tenants facing foreclosure and eviction, documents the impact of the foreclosure crisis on local communities, networks with related organizations throughout the Commonwealth, and provides tools and information to help people navigate the legal system and advocate on their own behalf more effectively when challenging a foreclosure or eviction in court
