Covid and the Rent

Updated, 1 p.m. 7/22, with recordings and links to events.

Rent control and other tenant protections are important elements in maintaining affordable housing, made more urgent by our current pandemic and related financial crisis. This week’s “Community thru Covid” looks at rent forgiveness, rent control, and recommended reforms with DC’s Reclaim Rent Control Campaign. Guests: Rebecca Johnson, tenant of a rent-controlled property in Northwest DC whose owners refuse to forgive any rent and member and organizer of DC Tenants Union; Farah Fosse of the Reclaim Rent Control campaign at DC Jobs with Justice.
