Ellison: Evictions Must Be Reduced
Ellison: Evictions must be reduced
U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., was at the Minneapolis Urban League on Wednesday night to talk about evictions.
“Tonight is not a night to beat up on landlords,” he told a crowd of about 100 residents, activists and landlords. “We need solutions. My goal is to cut the number of evictions.”
Evictions destabilize families, said Zoe Thiel, program manager of the Minneapolis Innovation Team, and having an eviction on a renter’s record “can be really damaging for a long time.”
