Damon King Pushes for a Full Moratorium on Foreclosures and Evictions to Build a More Equitable DC

Damon King ('09), Senior Policy Advocate with Legal Aid Society of DC, contributed a Letter to the Editor of The Washington Post spotlighting a gap in the city's coronavirus response and called for emergency legislation implementing a full moratorium on foreclosures and evictions. "DC Must Halt All Foreclosures and Evictions," Apr. 28) "The District must do all it can to ensure that homeowners and tenants do not suffer the trauma, wealth loss and displacement of foreclosure and eviction in the midst of a pandemic. … To build a more equitable District, we need to hit pause on these engines of displacement until we have a comprehensive strategy for an equitable recovery."
