Greetings, <<First Name>> !

March 1st arrives and the rent due yet again. This month we mark a year of living through a global pandemic with little government assistance or relief for renters and mortgage-payers. Many in our community are struggling. GHTU continues to work towards a day when housing is understood to be a human right.

The Landlord Question
When having conversations on evictions and fair housing, you will occasionally come across the “What About the Landlord?” question. What will they do without their “income”, and how could they possibly “maintain” the property without it?
News Round Up

February eviction numbers way down!

According to data compiled by our team from Dauphin County magistrate dockets, there were only 20 evictions filed in the first week of February which is the lowest weekly count since September!

GHTU has been active in pushing the mayor and courts to strictly enforce Harrisburg’s eviction moratorium, but we need your help!  If you see a violation of the eviction moratorium, fill out the city’s landlord tenant complaint form, which we've linked to on our website.

GHTU efforts with the Mayor
The Harrisburg city eviction moratorium has been extended for another month, stopping evictions until March 15, 2021. 

See Mayor Papenfuse’s livestream from February 12, 2021 talking about enforcement of the eviction moratorium and even shouting out GHTU!

Aiding in Decreasing Evictions
GHTU will be tabling at the Really Really Free Market on Sunday March 21, 2021 beginning at 10:00 am! Come talk with us about your housing questions and see what you can do to help! More information about the market can be found here: https://fb.me/e/1hGcSZWa8  

Call for Volunteers!
Volunteering is the lifeblood of this organization and it helps shape who we are and who we will be. The best part about it is anyone can do it!  Together we can work to stop the oppression of renters and take back our rights!
