Cori Bush and Homes for All St. Louis Fight to Extend Eviction Moratorium

As most of Congress has gone on recess, abandoning the working class and leaving renters to fend for themselves with an expired eviction moratorium, Congresswoman and DSA member Cori Bush is sleeping on the steps of the Capitol Building, demanding an extension of the moratorium.

Currently, STL DSA coalition partner Homes for All St. Louis is organizing to help those who are being forced out of their homes in this area. They have a toll-free hotline (314-252-8356), where they provide free education, organize support, provide advocacy services to arm renters against slumlords throughout St. Louis.
