Tiana Caldwell, center, and the KC Tenants group is working to amplify the voices and experiences of renters in the Kansas City metro.

Rent is due on Saturday, a federal eviction moratorium expired last week and expanded unemployment benefits are set to end soon. Two renters share their experience facing eviction during a pandemic.

The compounding situation means many more renters in Kansas City could soon face the prospect of eviction and possible homelessness.
