Affordable housing was a crisis in every state in the country before the pandemic. Now tens of millions of U.S. renters are estimated to be at risk of eviction in the coming months due to exacerbated economic challenges from COVID-19.  To keep pets in their homes, we have to keep people in their homes. Join us to talk through housing support, eviction response programs, support for the homeless, and advocacy on this important issue. This session runs 75-minutes.
