ACTIONS YOU CAN TAKE TODAY! 

State Advocacy!
  • Email Gov. Inslee to extend the eviction moratorium through March 31, 2021! We all need to act now on this.
  • Are you a board member, or do you work for a nonprofit organization? Join our Board Advocacy campaign and have your board pass a resolution in support of progressive revenue! Interested? Click here
  • The Housing Alliance is looking for people to send letters to the editor to your local newspaper. We have templates! If you are interested, please fill out this form and I'll follow up with you. 
Federal Advocacy!
  • Email or call your Members of Congress this week! Do it multiple times! Then tweet at them. Congress has reconvened, and the Senate will be proposing its version of a relief package soon, in response to the House's HEROES Act. From there, negotiations will ensue, and we need every single member of Washington's delegation to know that housing is the number one priority to focus on in this next package. TAKE ACTION HERE!
