FOX40 is continuing our Conversations for Change with a look at the fight for something thousands in our region are desperately trying to hold onto in this COVID-economy.

Nearly 240,000 households have fallen behind on rent, and their burden will amount to about $1.7 billion by the end of the year, according to the Federal Reserve.

This is your invitation to just listen. 

Conversations for Change are about putting aside division and snap judgment. This is an opportunity to listen to someone whose point of view you may disagree with. The goal is to create a better understanding between us all. 

FOX40’s Conversations for Change will bring you a different member of our community Tuesdays at 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.
