Help LMM Support Pay To Stay Legislation Iniatives
The CDC's Eviction Moratorium expires at the end of this month, but many Cleveland tenants will still need protection in place to avoid eviction. Last week, Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless (NEOCH) hosted a Pay to Stay Sit-In to increase awareness and momentum around the need for more tenant protections. LMM is very supportive of these efforts as it will help create stability as federal protections like the Eviction Moratorium expire. 

Join us in supporting NEOCH by sending City Council members a letter to pass Pay To Stay legislation. You can also show your support by participating in the DSA Eviction Canvassing effort.
