STOP the California Eviction Tsunami on the near horizon
Attention: Residents of California! Sign the Petition. Extend the Eviction Moratorium
We urgently need signatures from California residents, so that we can prevent a massive tsunami of evictions and homelessness. I recently wrote this petition on Change, I am asking you to read it, and if you agree with the contents, please sign and share with as many of your like-minded friends and colleagues as possible. We will present the petition to Governor Gavin Newsom and Mayor Eric Garcetti, as well as the California Judicial Council and the LA County Board of Supervisors. Thanks for your help!
