Note: This is an emergency action if no action is taken by Hogan before the 24th. Evictions are set to resume on July 25th.
Date: July 24, 2020, 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM
Location: 251 Rowe Blvd, Annapolis, MD
Tenants and advocates from across Maryland will convene in the state’s capitol to tell Governor Hogan that TIME’S UP for him to act to protect Maryland renters from eviction. With courts resuming eviction cases on the 25th and approx 145K Marylanders at risk of eviction – we are convening in person to demand the following actions be taken:
- Allocate at least $175 million to rental assistance and eviction protection from both state and federal funds.
- Expand the eviction moratorium to cover all types of eviction cases and extend the moratorium until the public health emergency ends, and residents have sufficient relief.
- Prohibit rental late fees and debt collection activities on rental payment during the State of Emergency and for at least one year after the State of Emergency is lifted.
Location: March will begin at District Courthouse (251 Rowe Boulevard). We will march down Rowe Blvd to Governor’s Mansion.
Speakers: Tenants facing evictions, late fees, and rent increases will share their stories and advocates will frame what the real life impact of the governor’s failure will be over the next few months. Contact Cat at email@example.com about speaking.
What to Bring: Signs and posters (We will present Governor Hogan with a giant eviction notice), hand sanitizer, mask, walking shoes, mask
*YOU MUST WEAR A MASK and adhere to social distancing guidelines to participate.
