This victory would NEVER have happened if it were not for the tireless work of tenants + housing activists ✊🏽✊🏿✊🏼

But the fight doesn't end here - while we won some breathing room, this just delays the eviction crisis, it doesn't solve it

To do that, we'd need to #CancelRent 1/
Under the CDC's #EvictionMoratorium, tenants will still accumulate debt for non-payment on rent — and this will ALL be due once the moratorium ends. Which will be in the dead of winter 2/
Another - more immediate - issue with the CDC's #EvictionMoratorium, it puts the onus almost entirely on the tenant to "prove" why they should not be evicted

This means tenants will still be forced to appear in eviction courts during this moratorium 3/
We must keep fighting for what the CDC #EvictionMoratorium lacks:

📢 Real $$ for housing relief

📢 The full cancellation of rent accumulated during the pandemic

In the meantime, stand up to the billionaire landlords who can afford to CANCEL RENT NOW 👇
