COVID-19 has been classified as a global pandemic. State and federal officials are encouraging people who feel sick to stay home, but many workers already struggle to make rent / mortgage or utility payments.

The expansion of unemployment insurance is a great step, but many gig economy workers and sole proprietors are still not covered. First generation business owners will suffer disproportionately. Many workers that rely on tips will not receive enough support from their limited wage estimate to meet their bills. Please expand protections to include our entire community, not just those covered by conventional governmental systems.

In order to ensure the health and housing security of our community, we call on Governor Walz to act now to protect us ALL . Specifically, we call for a suspension of all rent, mortgage, and utility payments for the length of the emergency to allow people to take care of themselves, their loved ones, and our community.

Thank you for your consideration!
