March 25th Phone Zap: Suspend Rents in Washington State

Call for a phone-zap to demand that Washington State Governor Jay Inslee issue a statewide rent moratorium for tenants.

Help push for a moratorium on rents and also plug into rent strike organizing on the ground here and here.

Contact: 

Office of the Governor: 360-902-4111

Phone Script:

“Hello Governor Inslee. With the COVID-19 pandemic currently spelling economic devastation for working class people, we urge you to immediately halt all rental payments in Washington. Furthermore, we demand that all rental debts accrued throughout the duration of this public health emergency be forgiven. Homeowners nationwide have been offered mortgage relief, and now similar protections must be extended to renters. Evictions moratoriums are an important first step, but they won’t protect tenants in the long-term who can’t pay back rent debts due to unemployment or a loss of income. If you maintain sanitation, hygiene, and shelter are key to fighting this pandemic, then ensuring housing access for all must be a priority.”
