Evictions Under A Pandemic

Fight to Extend Eviction Moratorium, No Eviction, Cancel Rent and Mortgage Payments, Unite our Forces to Oppose Evictions!

The state eviction moratorium ends Wednesday July 15th and 36th District Court extended the moratorium for Wayne County until August 17th. There are are 2600 possession judgments and 463 signed writs to evict in the pipeline from before the pandemic started. That means the day the moratorium on evictions is lifted, 463 tenants/families face immediate eviction. Many thousands of people have not been able to pay rent, have not been able to afford to pay rent. That means we are looking at 10,000+ evictions for nonpayment in the weeks and months ahead and that’s just in Detroit. The State of Michigan is looking at 100,000 evictions!

We need to unite our forces to defend our communities from racist attacks, police attacks and evictions. We need to focus on what we know best, trying to organize with buildings, neighborhoods, communities to stop all evictions and for relief from rent and mortgage payments during this crisis.

We need to join with other community and neighborhood groups, to demand that the eviction moratorium extends to at least 60 days beyond the Covid 19 crisis restrictions.
