Day of Action: Pass Good Cause – Hudson Valley!
April 30 @ 6:00 pm - May 1 @ 6:00 am
Join our statewide Day of Action in support of Good Cause Eviction! The Mayday May Day Sleep Out is intended to bring awareness to homelessness, particularly street homelessness in Kingston and Ulster County. Many falsely believe that because street homelessness is not highly visible, it’s not a problem in Kingston and Ulster County.
The sleep out also precedes the expiration of the NYS eviction moratorium on May 1st, after which thousands of tenants throughout the region could start receiving eviction notices –even though we are still in the midst of a global pandemic. This increased housing instability will leave many at risk of homelessness.
By sleeping out we hope to both show solidarity with those experiencing homelessness, while learning how to help each other through the housing crisis. Activities will include Anti-eviction Training with the Hudson Valley Eviction Defense Coalition.
