Action alert: fund emergency rental assistance!
Every day, we see another neighbor evicted from the West Side. But if we act now, we have the power to stop these evictions and keep families housed! Join us in calling on the Governor to fund additional emergency rental assistance and eviction protections.
Above (L to R): WSCO staff Ellie Leonardsmith, Mayra Avila, Monica Bravo, Cintya Canales, Katrina Garcia Mendoza, Joshua Toor, and Mohammed Farah at the Minnesota State Capitol last week to advocate for emergency rental assistance and an end to evictions.
Call the Governor today at 651-201-3400 to tell him to stop pandemic evictions and keep families in their homes!

The Equity In Place coalition
WSCO is a member of the Equity In Place Coalition (EIP). 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. We organize and advocate by leading with a race equity lens to understand and center how power inequities in our region and society shape inequitable outcomes for our communities.
