No one should be left homeless during crisis

To the editor:

During the current COVID-19 crisis, no one should be evicted from their home.

Governor Holcomb has issued a temporary moratorium on evictions; however, that order is set to expire on June 4. This means that in less than a month, thousands of Hoosiers across the state may be left homeless as they attempt to weather the pandemic.

As a renter myself and a current student, I know how difficult it can be to keep up with bills and tuition payments — especially as so many people are losing hours, jobs, and sources of income.

Every life in our state is precious, and every Hoosier deserves to have a roof over their head during this difficult time. That’s why I’m asking Governor Holcomb to extend the current eviction moratorium and ensure that no one is left homeless during this crisis.
