Episode 135: RENT

41 minutes

6/10/20-- New data from The MassINC Polling Group show that many Massachusetts renters and homeowners are struggling to make housing payments due to the financial burdens of the coronavirus crisis. MPG President Steve Koczela points to the key finding that people under the most economic strain during the pandemic are also much more likely to be in a household with COVID-19 themselves. Huge disparities exist between demographic groups in likelihood of missing a housing payment, and there is broad support among Massachusetts residents for housing policy proposals.

Juana Matias, COO of MassINC and former state Representative for the 16th Essex District of Massachusetts, shares data on race parity in our elected leadership as well as her experience running for the state House of Reps as well as U.S. Congress as a woman of color.
