BARHII is proud to have contributed to an article published in the August 3, 2020 edition of the KPIX CBS SF Bay Area.
Public health officials, along with State Assemblyman David Chiu, expressed concerns about the potential for millions of renters across the state to be evicted later in August. The article examines the looming eviction crisis, as well as proposed solutions. Key quotes from the article include:
"[State Assemblyman David] Chiu and public health officials like Sonoma County Public Health Officer Dr. Sundari Mase and UCSF Center for Vulnerable Populations Director Dr. Margot Kushel argued that failing to extend renter protections will force millions of residents into homelessness."
"'Keeping Californians housed is critical to keeping our state health during this time period,' Chiu said."
"The group of officials argued that the potential wave of evictions would hit Black and Latinx households harder than it would white households, much the same way Black and Latinx have faced disproportionate numbers of coronavirus infections during the pandemic."
