At the end of this month, extended unemployment benefits and the CDC eviction moratorium end. When almost half of all renters in America can’t pay rent, what’s going to happen to those people?

My guest today is a lawyer with Lone Star Legal in Houston, Jonna Treble. Right now Jonna is spending her time defending tenants in eviction proceedings, trying to keep them in their homes.

She shares some very human stories that her clients have experienced, including some that are incredibly heartwarming. What it’s like for kids trying to go to school from a laptop when their power has been shut off, or their parents struggling to even ask for help.

At your next convenience, contact your representatives, the Speaker of the house and Senate majority leader, to ask them why they aren’t bring relief for these individuals.
