From The City Club of Eugene:

Evictions initiate a cycle of housing instability for the renter—especially in markets like Eugene with little available housing—and they are time-consuming, stressful, and expensive for the landlord.

From the City Club of Eugene:

The death of George Floyd on May 25 set off a series of protests across the United States and around the world, prompting greater public attention to excessive use of police force, as well as concerns about police oversight and accountability. Several other deaths, primarily of Black Americans, including Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, have compounded and magnified calls for defunding or abolishing the police, in addition to other strategies for police reform.
