FARGO, ND – Working families who are already living month-to-month are suddenly without a paycheck because of COVID-19 disruptions. Many landlords are sending out letters saying rent is due in a few days as if everything was normal. Advocates and organizers on the ground are fighting hard, and we need to stand up for our neighbors.
Yesterday, Rep. Mary Schneider sent a letter urging Gov. Burgum to issue an Executive Order to cease evictions and foreclosures, utility shut-offs, and related fees/penalties to give North Dakotans peace of mind during our public health crisis. Chairwoman Kylie Oversen and the Dem-NPL joined her in that call.
