Rally for Rent Control THIS Wednesday 2/27

Please join us in Olympia this Wednesday 2/27 for RENT CONTROL DAY!

Tenants from all over Washington State are coming together to take over the Capitol Steps and demand the common sense policy we need for community stability. Will you be there to RALLY FOR RENT CONTROL!?

Things to know:
Address and schedule of events are in the flyer below! We’ll have coffee, snacks, and free t-shirts (while they last!) when you arrive to register from 12:30-2pm. We will also have a video station for you to tell your stories. After the 2-3pm rally we will have a tenant gathering with tamales and music until 5:30pm.

To offer or ask for a ride please use the carpool post pinned to the top of our event page here.

Wednesday is going to be a cold one! Current forecasts say party sunny and 40 degrees. We’ll warm you up with coffee before the rally and tamales after, but please dress for the cold and bring layers – the weather could change and we’ll be outside for about one hour!

Parking can be a challenge around the capitol! Please allow enough time and scope out the signs carefully. More information available here.
