The Seattle Renters’ Collective is a mutual aid society for renters who have been disproportionately impacted by the housing crisis in Seattle.
***WE DECLARE A HOUSING STATE OF EMERGENCY***
The State of Washington and the City of Seattle have failed to protect the interests and human rights of renters so now we are left with no choice but to take matters into our own hands.
Who should join:
*Renters who can't find affordable housing. *Renters who live in fear of excessive rent hikes. *Renters who can't find safe and clean housing. *Renters who face economic eviction due to excessive rent hikes. *Renters who face eviction because their affordable housing is being replaced with luxury units. *Renters who are being denied access to housing because of their source of income. *Any renter who has been negatively impacted by the housing crisis in Seattle.
What will the Seattle Renters' Collective do?
The Seattle Renters' Collective will do the following:
*Provide direct aid to each other when faced with excessive rent hikes and unjust evictions. *Collectively challenge greedy landlords who raise rent beyond a reasonable amount per year. *Collectively create a renter sponsored "rent control/rent stabilization" ordinance and enforce it. *Collectively provide direct financial aid to members in distress due to the housing crisis. *Collectively address the everyday challenges that renters face in Seattle.
