Jan 22 Eviction Townhall

Join us at 2pm on Friday, January 22nd at sandiegonaacp.org/eviction-zoom for information on fighting evictions in your community.

Longstanding racial inequities in the housing market, along with widening income disparity and the economic meltdown caused by COVID-19 have made many or our friends and neighbors wondering if they’ll be evicted.

State and Federal eviction moratoriums are set to expire soon, and when all that back rent is suddenly due, many people will be at risk of losing their homes.

Meanwhile, local, State and Federal agencies are looking at extending and improving protections for renters and compensating small landlords.

Join us to hear from agencies on the front line of this crisis about how you can help your community avoid evictions. Find out about where to go for what kind of help, and where to find the latest information about changes in the law.

Join us at sandiegonaacp.org/eviction-zoom!

San Diego County Board of Supervisors

We were recently approached by Supervisor Cox, who wanted to honor the Branch on its 100th Anniversary. At our October 3rd General Membership Meeting, we voted to decline the honor, due to longstanding issues with the Board of Supervisors treatment of African-Americans and other people of color, including the essentially broken CLERB, the resolution opposing AB-392, their failure to adequately address the housing crisis and other issues of interest to our Membership.

We plan instead to present a letter to the Board, outlining our complaints over their actions and policies.

However, we are aware that only a small part of our Membership is able to attend the General Membership Meetings, and we want to give everyone an opportunity to make their concerns known or give us feedback on the letter.

So, please, if you have input on what we should tell the supervisors, let us know by sending us an email!
