Suspend the Rent! PhoneZap 2

April 20, 2020

We need to suspend rents now! The covid-19 situation becomes both a housing crisis and a health crisis. Join us in phone zapping the Governor’s phonelines until he takes action on our demands.

What do we mean by phone zap? We will be calling in to the Governor’s office in shifts. If we get through to somebody, we will tell them our demands: suspend rents, increase tenant protections, and use vacant property to house people experiencing homelessness. If we don’t get through, we keep calling. We will do this in shifts throughout the day on Monday, April 20th, and, if our demands aren’t met, Friday, April 24th.

This makes it different from the typical advocacy, in that it will put pressure on the Governor, and force him to acknowledge our demands.

We invite you to join Seattle DSA, Tacoma DSA, Spokane DSA, and SnoCo DSAWhatcom DSA, Olympia DSA and many working people in making these calls. Training and a sample script will be provided.
