We are tenants and allies in Sacramento and the surrounding area working in solidarity to stop evictions. We came together in the summer of 2020 when headlines warned of an “eviction tsunami” as federal and state-level protections expired. Since that time, those protections have been extended haphazardly, at the last minute, and with confusing, loophole-ridden language. Many tenants who have received eviction notices have been shocked to discover that the pandemic eviction protections do not cover them.
We have been educating ourselves and the folks who call us seeking help about the protections that are out there as well as directly intervening when the law is not enough. We believe housing is a human right, and no one should be evicted during a global health crisis!
