Ep. 06: Tim Franzen (Housing Justice League Atlanta)

In continuing the Mainline’s COVID-19 coverage, Aja speaks with organizer and advocate Tim Franzen of Housing Justice League Atlanta on the phone to discuss the shifts we can expect in the coming days, their effects on the state and national scale, and what we can do as things develop. This episode includes resources for people who want to support local businesses hurting, particularly in the restaurant industry, as well as information regarding the halting of evictions in Fulton County. Updates and specific instructions also include.
