A Matter of Faith: Housing and Racial Justice
June 29, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm| Free
Join us Tuesday, 6/29, 12-1:15 pm, for a great discussion in challenging times:
- Police killings of Black men and women
- Global pandemic disproportionately harming and killing people of color
- Depression-era unemployment levels disproportionately harming people of color
And, if we don’t act immediately, millions of Black and brown people may be evicted from their homes in the coming months.
Over the last decade, we have witnessed a growing housing and economic crisis in the Bay area, a crisis of affordability and access for the most vulnerable members of our community. Many in our congregations and faith communities have been directly impacted by the lack of affordable housing and family-sustaining jobs. Many people of color have been displaced from their homes. This exodus has undermined the vital diversity and the remarkable vitality of our community.
We are deeply concerned about ending the Federal Eviction Protection plan (Temporary Halt in Residential Evictions to Prevent the Further Spread of COVID-19). The majority of tenants who benefited from this protection plan may be evicted and made homeless. It is a moral obligation and commitment to preserving housing by upholding tenant protections and anti-displacement policies and by investing in resources and supportive services for tenants. Having safe and affordable access to housing is a paramount issue for many of us.
