Congresswoman Cori Bush and I, along with our Congressional Progressive Caucus colleagues, recently gathered on the steps of the U.S. Capitol to fight for the extension of the national eviction moratorium. In response, the Biden administration announced a new 60-day federal moratorium on evictions in areas of the country ravaged by the Delta variant. But despite this new moratorium, many Angelenos remain concerned about paying rent.

On Wednesday, August 11, at 5:30pm, I will be holding a Renters’ Rights Workshop that will cover tenant protections under the new federal moratorium on evictions and the City of Los Angeles, as well as provide updates on the federal Emergency Rental Assistance program. Additionally, individuals will have the opportunity to connect with a tenant advocate or attorney through one-on-one informational sessions.

The event is free and open to the public. RSVP is required.
