IN THE NEWS:
SLEEPING OUTSIDE IN A PANDEMIC
From the New York Times: "Immigrant and renter advocates in cities across the country say they are being inundated with complaints about landlords pressuring tenants to pay rent money. They say landlords use harassment, illegal fees for late payments or repairs or simply change the locks as a way to force out vulnerable renters."
