Housing Justice Policy Committee
Short URL: https://seattledsa.org/?p=19547
6:00 pm to 7:30 pm
Join SDSA for our second meeting of the Housing Justice Policy Committee!
We are currently focused on planning a joint march for Amazon Workers and Tenant Rights on February 20th as part of a national day of solidarity with the Bessemer, Alabama Amazon workers organizing for a union.
We are also building town halls to put maximum pressure on state legislators to pass vital COVID tenant protections including a “just cause” eviction protection and barring landlords from evicting tenants for back rent accrued during the moratorium, and establishing a one-year rent freeze following the moratorium.
Our social media and research team is publicizing the connection between the housing crisis, COVID, capitalism, and the landlord lobby’s pull on the Democratic-Party dominated State Legislature. We are absolutely against any reduction of the Seattle Amazon Tax.
All of this helps us gear up for a broader class-struggle fight for a green jobs program to rapidly build tens of thousands of affordable homes, statewide rent control, and permanent “just cause eviction” protections.
Join us on Thursday to help build for the February 20th Rally for Amazon Workers and Tenant Rights and the campaign beyond!
