Your livelihood has been disrupted by Covid-19. 

How will YOU pay your rent or mortgage & utility bills during the duration of the Covid-19 pandemic?

Rent is due APRIL 1st, but experts say the virus isn’t likely to peak until June. In light of local, state and federal government bodies instituting social distancing and other preventive measures to curb the spread of Covid-19, we the people of New York City and the United States of America call for a universal rent, mortgage, and essential utility bill freeze. 

Are you living under quarantine and unable to work due to government policies related to Covid-19

AND:

  • Work in hospitality or the food industry?
  • Work in the entertainment industry?
  • A gig-worker?
  • A freelancer?
  • A student?
  • A single-income family? 
  • Live on a month-to-month income?
  • A reliable renter without a viable way to make a living under quarantine?
  • A homeowner or non-commercial landlord dependent on rental income to pay your personal mortgage or bills? 

Demand that your representatives enact a rent and mortgage freeze and freeze on essential utility bills (gas, electric, water) for all tenants and affected individuals during any government mandated period of business closures, curfews, and quarantines enacted to fight the spread of Covid-19!

  • We want to pay rent. 
  • We want to make a living. 
  • We want to stop Covid-19.
  • We don't want to lose our security. 

Mayor DeBlasio, Governor Cuomo, and President Trump must flatten the curve, fight Covid-19, and help us survive this pandemic without fear of losing our homes.

THEREFORE,

We call on our government to immediately enact a rent and mortgage freeze and freeze on essential utility bills until preventative measures are withdrawn and we may legally return to our jobs.
