Congress Goes Home While Tens of Millions of Renters Risk Losing Theirs
September 2, 2020
The Senate officially adjourned for August recess through Labor Day, walking away from negotiations over the next coronavirus relief package and leaving tens of millions of renters on their own as they face evictions and imminent risk of homelessness.
Contact your members of Congress and demand that they #GetBackToWork and #DoYourJob to pass a comprehensive relief package. The time for political games and brinksmanship has long passed. Negotiations must restart to reach a deal that includes robust housing and homelessness protections and resources.
1. Contact your senators and representatives and demand that Congress restart negotiations and pass the essential housing provisions of the HEROES Act. Find the phone numbers of your members of Congress here or send an email!
