The pandemic has amplified housing insecurity for many Californians. Women in particular are finding it difficult to pay rent due to increased financial strains. According to the Urban Institute, a poll by the real estate site Avail shows almost a third of tenants (and half of landlords) are unaware of rental assistance options. Visit California Housingfor information on rental assistance, eviction protection, and foreclosure assistance.

U.S. women dominated at the summer Olympics! “If U.S. women were their own country, they would have finished fourth in the Olympic medal count, ahead of Great Britain, Japan, Australia, Germany, and nearly 200 other countries, and behind only the entire U.S. team, China, and the Russian Olympic Committee. Of Team USA’s 113 medals at these Games, 66 were won by women and 41 were won by men.”
