An Imminent Housing Crisis
There exists the threat of impending evictions which may well soon evict
28 million people/families
out of their homes if nothing is urgently done.
There are also enough empty homes.
As of 2018
, there were nearly 1.5 million vacant homes in the country. Compare that to the estimated
553,742 people homeless
on any given night.
So even before the pandemic, there were three empty houses for every homeless person.
There is a strong and suppressed history of fighting against landlords and the cruelty of evictions, such as the great
Rent Strike War of 1932
in the Bronx, and the
Chicago Eviction Riots of 1931
