What is happening out there? Eviction Moratoria & the Future of Tenants’ Rights in a COVID-19 World

Affordable Housing Month

One upside of the COVID-19 public health crisis has been the willingness of cities and states throughout the country to enact eviction moratoria, protecting tenants from eviction while the shelter in place order continues.  But are these protections working, and what’s next for the tenants’ rights movement?

This panel will feature attorneys from the Law Foundation of Silicon Valley, tenant organizers, and others to discuss how the moratoria came about and what they mean for the future of tenants’ rights in California.

Panelists:

Michael Trujillo, Staff Attorney, Law Foundation of Silicon Valley

Victor Vasquez, Director of Organizing & Policy, SOMOS Mayfair

Carroll Fife, Oakland Director, Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment – ACCE

Leah Simon Weisberg, Legal Director for Anti-Displacement and Land Use Programs, Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment – ACCE

Moderated by Nadia Aziz, Directing Attorney, Law Foundation of Silicon Valley
