Our Public Policy Advocacy team has been working hard in anticipation of the 2021 Legislative Session, as well as a potential special session before the new year. Specifically, we are calling for an extension of the statewide eviction moratorium that is set to expire on Dec. 31.
Housing stability is interlinked with many issues EMO advocates for, such as food security and addressing youth homelessness. At our food pantry (NE Emergency Food Program) and others across the state, we are hearing stories of Oregonians who are being forced to decide between paying for rent or putting food on the table.
Join us in supporting the most vulnerable among us during this pandemic: Take action and contact your state legislators to extend the eviction moratorium (at least through the end of the school year). Please use the button link below to email your legislators.
Our team would not find its success without the engagement of our statewide network of people like you. We thank you for your dedication!
