Muncie IN, on Monday August 31, 2020 at 10:00 am Freedom First International, Muncie Housing Crisis Coalition along with community activist would like to invite Members of the media, Elected Official’s & Activist, to join us in a Press Conference (Delaware County Building 100 W. Washington St. Muncie, In.) To give a voice and begin the fight for those who are facing potential eviction as millions of America’s renters could soon be pushed to the brink of homelessness.
Although Gov. Eric Holcomb temporarily suspended residential evictions due to a public health emergency caused by the novel coronavirus. People across the state who are left jobless or with reduced income as they struggle with lack or loss of finances are still in danger of becoming homeless.
The group will be joined along with members of the community who have been subject to facing evictions, as court hearings are still going on in pockets of the country including Muncie and others. In some cases, judges are allowing renters and landlords to attend hearings by phone or video conferencing.
The press conference will be broadcast on over 60 national social media sites.
- The enhanced unemployment benefits that have kept many afloat have expired. The recession triggered by the pandemic is expected to be deeper and longer than initially forecast as coronavirus cases surge across the country.
- Of the 110 million Americans living in rental households, 20 percent are at risk of eviction by Sept. 30, according to an analysis by the Covid-19 Eviction Defense Project, a Colorado-based community group. African American and Hispanic renters are expected to be hit hardest.
- A federal moratorium that had protected an estimated 12 million people from eviction for four months ended July 24.
