Hello, this is (Name)__ ____. I am calling as a local voter and resident of (City/Town)______ to urge you to take immediate action to address the COVID-19 crisis. Working class people like myself are unable to make rent, even with the existing supports we have in place.
Your constituents need you to:
- Impose a moratorium on evictions for the duration of the coronavirus epidemic.
- Put forth a moratorium on rent payments for the duration of this crisis, including the absolvement of current and new tenant debt.
Without these necessary, reasonable, and life-saving measures, many of our community members will be in danger. As a leader of our community you face an important choice in this crisis; your constituents will remember your actions.
Can we count on you is to ensure the health and safety of our neighbors, and to safeguard our community against unprecedented financial ruin?
Thanks for taking the time to listen,
