Our community is disproportionately out of work, with a stay at home order, panicking about looming rent/mortgages. We need Emergency Housing Protections NOW.  

The Tacoma Tenants Organizing Committee along with the Washington State Tenants Union demand our representatives enact these policies now:

  • 90-day Moratorium on Evictions, Foreclosures & Utility Shut-offs; Close the Loop-hole on Pay or Vacate Notices;
  • Three year Moratorium on Rent Increases;
  • Moratorium on Accumulation of Late Fees;
  • 90-day Rent & Mortgage Freeze;
  • Protect the Safety of the Most Vulnerable, the Unhoused;
  • Push for statewide measures to uphold permanent protections of all tenants across Washington State:
    • Lifting the Constitutional Ban on Rent Control Enact statewide;
    • Rent Control similar to Oregon and California’s recent meas ;
    • Just Cause Protections.
