The Tenants Union of Washington is calling for participation in a National Renters Day of Action “to declare a Renter State of Emergency and take to the streets to demand an end to Rising Rents, Evictions and Gentrification.”
The national action is set for Thursday, Sep. 22, but the Seattle group has plans for the previous day, as they reported on the Homes For All coordinating website:
We are holding our action on Wednesday 9/21 to align with the Seattle City Council’s Affordable Housing committee meeting. We plan to take space during the committee’s public testimony period then create a semi-permanent structure in either the lobby or outside plaza of city hall where people can attach their experiences as renters on one side and share their visions for the future on the other side.
Co-sponsoring organizations are: SAFE In Seattle, Puget Sound SAGE, and Recover The World.
