Jersey City rent/mortgage freeze

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!

No Resident of Jersey City should have to worry about paying rent or mortgage if they depend on rent money from tenants amid COVID-19 pandemic. 
our country and especially our State is in the middle of a public health crisis. Each passing day, more and more people are at risk of contracting COVID-19. 

We are facing loss of income as we are either forced or voluntarily decide to stay home from work to protect our health. As the public is urged to avoid public spaces, small businesses are facing a similar loss of income -- a problem made worse by xenophobia against immigrant-owned businesses in particular. 

Evictions and homelessness significantly worsen the threat posed by COVID-19. In order to halt widespread displacement from our homes and our jobs or businesses which would only worsen the current situation, we are calling on Governor Murphy and Mayor Fulop to immediately freeze rent/mortgage payments and institute a moratorium on all evictions and utility shut-offs in Jersey City
