NO PAY. NO RENT.

 

THEY CAN’T EVICT US ALL.

We demand Governor Polis pass an executive order freezing rent, utilities, evictions, foreclosures, and camping tickets without back payments nor taxation on assistance until this global pandemic and national emergency end.

We started organizing in response to the existing housing crisis being catastrophically exacerbated by income loss and other effects of COVID19.
