No Newyorker should have to worry about paying rent amid COVID-19 pandemic. 

New York State is in the middle of a public health crisis. Each passing day, more and more people are at risk of contracting COVID-19. 

New Yorkers 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 Cuomo and Mayor DeBlasio to immediately freeze rents, and institute a moratorium on all evictions and utility shut-offs in New York State in New York State.
