Every human being deserves stable, affordable housing. Unfortunately, an estimated 32,872 Milwaukee County residents were evicted from their homes last year, many of them families with children. There is an eviction crisis in Milwaukee County and we must come together as a community to solve it.
Fortunately, a new resolution co-sponsored by Milwaukee County Supervisors Marina Dimitrijevic and Marcelia Nicholson would provide some relief for tenants living in defective homes or facing unlawful evictions.
