Jade Eden started this petition to Governor of Arizona Doug Ducey

HUGE UPDATE: The HUD and President Trump have put out a press release stating they will be suspending evictions and foreclosures for the next 60 days, but only for homes that have FHA insurance, which, as of a 2018 mortgage statistics page, only accounts for about 23% of loans issued in 2017 (Tendayi Kapfidze, Government vs Private Securitization).

Other states and countries have already followed suit (Justine Coleman, p.2)(Amanda Monroe, 2020). Many will be financially devastated if we do not take action now before the state of Arizona follows California, Italy, and China’s suit by locking citizens in their homes and closing non-essential businesses. People are already losing their jobs and homes over this, we need to get ahead of it for the regular people who will be financially devastated due to the effects of this virus. Homeless people not only have a higher chance to catch coronavirus but to spread it as well (Reid Wilson, 2020). Please sign this petition, if not to help yourself, to help others in worse positions than yourself. At the absolute least, Arizona needs to suspend evictions so our already large homeless problem does not grow. 1 in every 184 citizens in Arizona are homeless (Phoenix Rescue Mission, 4th row). We need this to go through to prevent it from becoming an insurmountable issue.
