Tell Governor Brian Kemp to implement a rent freeze and moratorium on all evictions in Georgia!

In the face of an escalating public health crisis, including record breaking layoffs, we demand that Governor Brian Kemp implement a rent freeze and moratorium on evictions in the state of Georgia.

Why is this important?

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is now officially classified as a pandemic and the National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases Director has stated, “it’s going to get worse''. Across media outlets, the prevailing safety precautions include “wash your hands" and “stay home”. However, residents in this state are not guaranteed to have access to these basic necessities. Water shut-offs, evictions and homelessness significantly worsen the threat posed by COVID-19. If more residents are evicted during this period, COVID-19 could start to spread more rapidly among those who become homeless. We cannot afford to have more emergencies on top of the current emergency.

We urge Governor Brian Kemp to be an example for the nation while he stands with his constituents and implement a rent freeze and moratorium on all evictions in the state of Georgia.

Reasons for signing

  • Anyone who takes part in or supports kicking a family out of the safety of their home during a pandemic, deserves to be shamed and challenged. Our humanity and empathy must rise above everything else, above money, politics, reputations and personal gains. Furthermore, shutting off water and evicting families encourages the spread of disease which exacerbates the pandemic. This should be common sense, but unfortunately it must be fought for.
  • Justice !!
