|State Rep. Jason Lowe, D-Oklahoma City, will host a press conference to address the looming spike in evictions throughout the state and to announce a coalition of community leaders that will be providing support to those facing eviction.
“Thousands of Oklahomans, devastated by job loss and decreased income due to COVID-19, are facing eviction next month now that the federal eviction moratorium has expired,” Lowe said. “It is imperative that the public knows their rights as tenants, as well as the community services available to them in order to prevent a homelessness crisis.”
