Greens call for Rent/Mortgage Moratorium

SF Green Party Calls for Moratorium on Rent and Mortgage Payments

In the midst of the world’s greatest viral pandemic in modern times, the San Francisco Green Party is supporting calls to halt rent and mortgage payments until people are able to return to work and recover their economic stability.

This unprecedented mass shutdown of normal operations is leaving many already on a tight budget struggling to make ends meet and in order to avoid a more serious crisis, relief must come immediately.

Furthermore, this relief must not be just a delay of payments but a cancellation, as people cannot be reasonably expected to be able to make up for months of lost work whenever this is over.

Our specific call is for our home of San Francisco, but we believe similar action should be taken statewide and nationwide.
