[ACTION OPPORTUNITY] Petition to Expand Eviction Moratorium

The COVID crisis is in danger of fast becoming an eviction crisis. But if we act quickly this is at least one catastrophe we can stop before it gets out of control. The People’s Alliance of San Mateo County—of which One San Mateo is a member—is circulating a petition calling upon the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors to take decisive action to stem the tide of financial and personal ruin facing many tenants right now. Make no mistake about it, this is both a matter of protecting tenants from mass displacement and of protecting the general public health from the consequences of people being forced to scramble for shelter. Will you take a moment to sign and share this petition?
