I’m curious to know what people think about potential strengths and weaknesses of the CDC moratorium on evictions
Lisa Owens
52:23
The CDC provides protection to states that didn’t have statewide moratoria, but it’s much weaker than our state’s moratorium
Penn Loh (he)
53:22
CPA is Community Preservation Act in Mass, which imposes a tax on real estate sales to fund housing, open space, and historic preservation.
Nicole Eigbrett (she/her/hers)
53:25
Thanks for your insight, Meridith, I would definitely like to hear about your previous work in Somerville and where the opportunities still exist (I work for CAAS)
Katherine Shor
54:54
In North Carolina (where I am located) I have learned that you have to fill out a form and submit to landlord in order to “qualify” for the moratorium.
Gabby Queenan (she/her)
55:00
What’s currently holding up an Act to guarantee housing stability in the State House? What are the funding sources for the proposed programs in the bill?
Ellie Lochhead
55:45
In terms of academic research on the topic of housing stability/eviction, what are the questions that will be most pressing to answer in the next few months?
Josh McLinden (he/him)
55:54
I’m curious to learn more about how BNCLT empowers community control and governance, and what those structures and processes look like?
Josh McLinden (he/him)
56:28
I’d also like to hear if the CLT or other orgs are exploring alternative ownership models like coops
Josh McLinden (he/him)
57:42
the car caravans have been so amazing 😍
Katherine Shor
58:20
Yes! I remember thinking about knocking on a place on the door that would be “less likely to be touched”
Katherine Shor

Today's Boston Globe reported 14% increase in home prices in Boston area. How does this complicate pandemic housing affordability and eviction?
Ellie Lochhead
01:04:05
Thanks all!
Katherine Shor
01:05:28
14% increase compared to what?
Katherine Shor
01:05:32
Last year? Last month?
Becky Eidelman

This is the article mentioned in the comment:
Laurie Goldman
01:06:58
All panelists noted the inter-related issues of housing, employment, food security and other needs. What are the new opportunities for alliances across these silos? The challenges of dedicating scarce time and attention resources to those efforts?
Penn Loh (he)
01:07:00
Compared to same month last year
Christine Cousineau
01:08:40
The 14% increase was last month. https://www.bostonglobe.com/2020/09/23/business/buying-home-good-luck-prices-soared-14-percent-last-month/?s_campaign=breakingnews:newsletter
Christine Cousineau
01:09:41
yes, compared to August last year
Laurie Goldman
01:09:57
Yes, racism and racialization is the common thread
Allison (she/her)
01:10:34
Why does CLVU make the distinction between “small” landlords and corporate landlords? Why is a landlord with eight properties more acceptable than one with nine, when the tenant-landlord relationship is always extractive, no matter the landlord’s size? All landlords deprive people of housing because they commodify a human right, no? Thank you so much for your response!
Katherine Shor
01:15:08
^^^^what Allison said
Lisa Owens
01:16:28
We organize based on people’s class interests. Small landlords and working class homeowners’ interests are more closely aligned with working class renters. We need this coalition in order to build the power for systemic change
