WASHINGTON — Following successful advocacy from Rep. Cori Bush, Rep. Jamaal Bowman and other lawmakers and activists pushing for an extension of the federal eviction moratorium, U.S. Rep. Jamaal Bowman issued the following statement:

“This is a big win for our district, and I’m proud to have played my part in making it happen. Losing your home is one of the most destabilizing, inhumane things a person can experience. But thanks to the tireless work of so many activists, community leaders, and elected officials, millions of Americans won’t have to worry about being evicted as the Delta variant rages across the country.”
