SDG 01: No Poverty

Maryland Rep Julian Ivey speaks out about evictions after gathering with others outside of an apartment complex with the intention to stop the alleged eviction of one of the tenants in Mount Rainier, MD, U.S., August 10, 2020. While Maryland remains under a State of Emergency, evictions are prohibited for tenants who are 'suffering substantial loss of income due to COVID-19'. Picture taken August 10, 2020.
