The $600 stimulus check is not enough and Biden's proposed $2,000 just adds insult to injury. Singular stimulus checks of any amount are not suffiecnt, we need replacement income for those who cannot work. One-third of people are struggling to pay their bills and are unable to catch up with rent. The eviction moratoriums nationally and locally have stopped millions of evictions but rent debt is still piling up. The looming eviction crisis will hit oppressed communities, already unevenly affected by the pandemic, the hardest.
Big landlords are abusing loopholes and filing eviction lawsuits against families regardless of the moratoriums. Additionally, the official eviction moratorium is set to expire on January 31st.
Despite all their claims to the contrary the government can immediately cancel rents and mortgages, house the homeless and stop evictions. Yet they choose to bail out the corporations and the banks. The money is there to give the people what they need to survive this pandemic. The money is there to help people keep their homes without accumulating debt. We must and can build the movement to defend our communities and stop all evictions and foreclosures.
Join the caravan and ride with us to demand they cancel the rent and mortgages and help build the movement to ensure housing for all.
• Cancel the Rents and Mortgages!• No evictions!• No foreclosures!• House the homeless in vacant housing!
