CIDNY was disheartened to hear the United States Supreme Court’s decision to end the federal eviction moratorium during a pandemic. The pandemic is not over. The housing crisis is not over. People with disabilities are disproportionately affected by housing issues, income equality, and employment. As the Delta variant spreads and we move into the fall season, ending the eviction moratorium is cruel and a potential disaster. We urge you to contact your local representatives (you can find how to do that at http://www.usa.gov/elected-officials) and make your voice heard.
