DENVER (CBS4)– Community groups, elected leaders and labor unions joined forces for a virtual rally to demand that Gov. Jared Polis cancel rent and mortgage payments until the coronavirus pandemic is over.
On Thursday, Polis enacted an executive order for Colorado that no one will be evicted for nonpayment during the month of May.
Activists say that’s only a bandage on the real issue.
“The moratoriums are just going to be delaying the coming flood of evictions and foreclosures that we will see when the order expires,” said Aurora City Councilman Juan Marcano.
