It's 2021, and our homes, jobs, and health are still on the line. COVID-19 is surging and unemployment is at historic levels, while eviction moratoriums are due to expire across the country. The call to cancel rent is more urgent than ever.
So how do we win and what is DSA's role in the fight? Chapters big and small have organized tenants to go on rent strike, and joined coalitions to try to sway lawmakers to stop evictions. What strategies are working? Is #CancelRent a demand that we can even win from lawmakers, or one we must win building by building through collective action?
