EIP Resource: From Emergency Protections to Equitable Solutions
Equity in Place is a diverse group of strategic partners from organizations led by people of color and housing advocacy organizations working to advance housing justice and equitable community development.
Our communities know that Minnesota renters faced a housing crisis long before the COVID pandemic — but the public health emergency underscored that policymakers have the power to safeguard the lives of renters when there is the political will. The eviction moratorium provided evidence that strong tenant protections are not just possible but beneficial to all residents — and another paradigm is possible.
As emergency protections expire, we must adopt new narratives and policy approaches to move beyond temporary measures to lasting systems change that delivers justice and equity for renters.
