Suspend Rent, Mortgage, & Utility Payments During the Coronavirus Crisis


COVID-19 (also known as coronavirus) has been classified as a global pandemic. Hawaii already has at least 7 cases statewide. State and federal officials are encouraging people who feel sick to stay home, but many workers already struggle to make rent or mortgage payments. The choice to skip work for the sake of community health could leave them and their families unsheltered.

In order to protect the health and housing security of our community, we, the undersigned, call on Governor Ige to act now so workers won't have to make that choice. Specifically, we call for a suspension of all rent, mortgage, and utility payments for 2 full months to allow people to do what they need to in order to take care of themselves, their loved ones, and the community. The less stressed individuals are the better they are able to cope with distress. A top stressor is financial strain. No one should lose their home or utilities because they are doing the right thing for their community. 

The legacy of every public official currently serving will be determined in the next few months.

It's time to act now, and choose the right side of history. Choose the people.

What is the deeper meaning of the word pono?
In life, pono stands for righteousness and balance. In Hawaiian, if a person is living pono, it means that they have struck the right balance in their relationships with other things, places, and people in their lives. It also means that they are living with a continuous conscious decision to do right by themselves, by others, and by the world in general.
