QUICK EVICTIONS

HB 390 has been re-drafted as an amendment to SB 273 and it will shorten the eviction process by counting holidays and weekends against tenants. The end result will be more evictions, more homelessness, and more families struggling to get safe, decent, and affordable housing, without an opportunity to access assistance and solutions.



Congress continues work on two important issues: 

The Executive Order signed on June 20th doesn't accomplish the goal of reunification on adopting a more human process. Scroll down for email options on each issue.

KEEP FAMILIES TOGETHER 

CALL CONGRESS TODAY: 
Call: 202) 224-3121 and ask to be connected to your Congressional Representative. (They may ask for your address to help you figure out who that is.) A staff member will answer.

"Hi, my name is _______ and as a person of faith I am against the separation of families by our federal government. The Executive Order signed on June 20th does not go far enough in providing guidance to immigration officials on how to serve families during the asylum process nor does it help reunite families already divided. The recent raids on employers are also dividing families in Ohio and need to focus on enforcing labor protections for workers, not further causing trauma to families and children in crisis. Thank you for your time, and please pass along my concerns to the Representative."

FOOD FOR FAMILIES: FARM BILL 

CALL CONGRESS TODAY: 
Call: 202) 224-3121 and ask to be connected to your Congressional Representative. (They may ask for your address to help you figure out who that is.) A staff member will answer.

"Hi my name is _____________ and as a person of faith, I believe everyone should receive their daily bread. I am against the House version of the Farm Bill because it will take food off the table of hungry Ohio families. The proposed additional work requirements will do harm to older Ohioans and school-aged children. The Senate Farm Bill is much better at helping hardworking families have access to nutritional food that is needed for success. Thank you for your time and service. Please pass along my comments to the Representative."
