Ep. 12: Updates from the Housing Justice League

In this episode, Aja checks back in with Housing Justice League Atlanta and organizer Tim Franzen. This time, they are joined by Sanae of HJL and Israel, who is just one of many Georgians who has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The four cut to the chase and answer the question that is now regularly being raised: should we do a rent strike? Here, Housing Justice League give us a rundown of the resources available to renters and tenants, as well as homeowners and mortgage holders. The Housing Justice League is now operating its official hotline to help. If you are experiencing housing insecurity because of COVID-19, please call the Housing Justice League’s new hotline in response to this pandemic at 404-946-9953 to learn more about next steps. We will continue to report back updates as things continue to develop.
