KC TENANTS PROTEST AT COURTHOUSE: END EVICTIONS OR PEOPLE DIE!!!
These activists seemed committed to their cause and dropped to the ground to show their commitment in the rain this morning.
Check their words and video:
KC Tenants protest call to action . . .
"Despite driving hundreds of calls and emails into the offices of Presiding Judge David M. Byrn, calling on him to stop evictions during this pandemic, his office has not responded.
"In-person eviction hearings began last Thursday. Right now, hundreds more tenants face eviction. The Jackson County eviction moratorium is set to end on May 31, and tenants can be physically removed from their homes as soon as June 1. Rent will be due again on June 1, and thousands across the metro area will not be able to pay.
"Today, during the landlord-tenant docket, we call on Judge Byrn to extend the eviction moratorium before it expires."
