TU Leads Seattle City Councilmember Tom Rasmussen on Tour of South End

Earlier this month, members and staff of the Tenants Union led Seattle City Councilmember Tom Rasmussen on a tour of Southeast Seattle. The tour stopped at several sites in the area, focusing on low-quality housing in the area, along with the tide of gentrification which threatens long-term residents of the community.

After the tour, Rasmussen met with Tenants Union members and leaders for questions and a discussion. We hope to work together with Councilmember Rasmussen and others to win changes in city policies which promote gentrification.
