No Debt, No Evictions

In response to pressure, Governor Jay Inlsee extended the emergency eviction moratorium until October 15th, 2020. However, this does not protect our communities from crushing housing debt, violent displacement, and ongoing racist and predatory evictions and gentrification.

In days, the emergency eviction moratorium will expire and without bold action, Governor Jay Inslee will be unleashing a mass wave of catastrophic evictions in Washington. To protect Washingtonians’ health during a global pandemic, we must fight to ensure all our neighbors are able to stay sheltered and emerge without insurmountable debt. That is why we are calling for No Debt, No Evictions: Cancel Rent and Mortgages Washington!

This campaign is responding to a housing instability crisis that the pandemic exacerbated but has been brewing for decades. Our No Debt, No Evictions campaign is part of a national movement calling for the cancelation of rent, mortgages, utilities and all related debt for the duration of the crisis. We are not going to give up on our neighbors or neighborhoods and we will not allow for the legacy of racist and preditory evictions and gentrification to continue in the shadow of COVID-19!

That is why we need you to join us in demanding that Governor Inslee and our Washington state representatives enact the following key policies:

1

Enact Moratorium on Evictions, Foreclosures, Sweeps!

2

Cancel All Rent, Mortgages, Late Fees, and Housing Debt

3

Pass Just Cause
Eviction Protections!

4

Permanently Affordable and Democratically-Controlled Housing: Pass Rent Control and Community Opportunity to Purchase
