California Gov. Gavin Newsom suspended most evictions in April. But now state lawmakers are debating whether to lift the moratorium, leaving renters who have lost their jobs to the pandemic facing an uncertain future.
To learn about how this could impact the affordable housing market, and homelessness, Valley Edition host Kathleen Schock spoke with Patience Milrod, Executive Director of Central California Legal Services, and Amber Crowell, assistant professor of sociology at Fresno State. Crowell also serves as housing coordinator for Faith In The Valley, which recently released a report on eviction in Kern County.
