The economic crisis triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic has caused millions to lose their jobs or see their hours of work reduced. Workers are struggling to make ends meet and the emergency income relief put forward by the government is not enough.
Millions are faced with prospect of being unable to pay their rent or having to direct almost all of their income support to their landlords. Join Spring Magazine for a discussion with tenant organizers about how to build tenant power in the midst of a pandemic.
