HOUSING

IS HEALTH

NO HOMELESSNESS & NO RENT DEBT

DUE TO COVID-19

ACORN is campaigning for housing security for all during and after the Coronavirus emergency. Everybody has a right to housing and everybody has a duty to stop the spread of the virus. Rent debt, evictions and homelessness are a serious threat to the health of individuals and to the wellbeing of wider society.


STAND UP TO COVID EVICTIONS.
