Evictions

 

We are grateful for the eviction moratorium and how it has prevented people from falling into homelessness and loosing their homes. We’re also grateful for the monetary support available that folks affected by the pandemic can still access. There are resources at the county, state and federal level if you or someone who know needs help. They will need to determine which resources is the best fit for them. Today in our local Star News, two articles in this blog will give you a start to find help.

As the co-founding director of Making Housing and Community Happen, I just did a workshop last week on the eviction moratorium. In it we framed eviction as a form of violence with the ripples of unsurmountable challenges that come with being displaced. God too feels that eviction is something that He despises as a form of injustice and even violence. 

“Thus says the Lord God: Enough, O princes of Israel! Put away violence and oppression, and execute justice and righteousness. Cease your evictions of my people, declares the Lord God. You shall have just balances, a just ephah, and a just bath.”- Ezekiel 45:9-10

“What sorrow awaits you who lie awake at night, thinking up evil plans. You rise at dawn and hurry to carry them out, simply because you have the power to do so. When you want a piece of land, you find a way to seize it. When you want someone’s house, you take it by fraud and violence. You cheat a man of his property, stealing his family’s inheritance.” -Micah 2:1-2
