On November 2, 2015, Mayor Ed Murray and King County Executive Dow Constantine declared a civil state of emergency in response to the homeless crisis in Seattle.

"Seattle is facing an emergency as a result of the growing crisis in homelessness. The City is prepared to do more as the number of people in crisis continues to rise, but our federal and state partners must also do more. Cities cannot do this alone. Addressing homelessness must be a national priority with a federal response."
-Mayor Ed Murray
