Historic Tenant Delegation Travels to D.C.
11 Tenants From Across the Country Who Have Been Evicted or Face Mounting Rental Debt During the Pandemic to Meet Face-to-Face With Biden Admin and Congress
A delegation of 11 tenant leaders with the People’s Action’s Homes Guarantee campaign who have been evicted or face mounting rental debt during the pandemic will travel to Washington, D.C to meet face-to-face with government leaders.
This delegation is historic: it’s the first time in more than a year that a group of tenants will meet in-person with the White House, the Treasury Department, and members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate concerning evictions and rental assistance.
These tenants represent the 30 to 40 million people currently at risk of eviction with no federal protections. People’s Action’s Homes Guarantee campaign is in the middle of the largest field operation in the history of the tenant movement, engaging over a million tenants in the process of writing their own rights into existence via a National Tenants’ Bill of Rights.
