With each passing day, more and more people are at risk of contracting the global pandemic, COVID-19. This crisis will affect homeless, poor, ill, and elderly people most of all — and those who face homelessness or day-to-day housing insecurity are at a higher risk of being exposed to the virus, becoming ill, and suffering catastrophic health outcomes. Workers will face a substantial loss of income as we self-isolate and stay home from work to protect our community's health. Additionally, evictions and homelessness will significantly worsen the transmission of COVID-19.

Thankfully, leaders in San Jose ([link removed]) , San Francisco ([link removed]) , and Miami-Dade County ([link removed]) have taken similar actions to guarantee housing as a human right, while mitigating the unfolding crisis. Please sign our petition to demand our elected officials also take immediate action! ([link removed])

Thank you for your support, and stay healthy and safe.

In solidarity,
