Cori Bush and Elizabeth Warren Intro Eviction Ban Bill as Housing Activists Rally in D.C.

HeadlineSep 22, 2021

In other news from D.C., Congressmember Cori Bush and Senator Elizabeth Warren have introduced legislation that would reinstate the federal pandemic eviction moratorium and give the Health and Human Services Department permanent authority to enact an eviction ban during public health crises. The bill was unveiled at an anti-eviction rally Tuesday outside Congress, led by people who have been evicted or are facing eviction. This is Vivian Smith, a leader with the Miami Workers Center.

Vivian Smith: “I’ve been forced to choose between food, rent too many times. Many of us had to make the choice or the choices between our health or our homes. The rent eat first.”

Audience member: “That ain’t right!”
