Councilmember Morales & others rally for enhanced eviction protections

Councilmember Tammy J. Morales (District 2 - South Seattle & The C/ID), housing advocates, tenant protection groups, renters and community members rallied for new protections for renters on Friday outside of City Hall. Morales introduced new legislation that provides an enhanced eviction defense for renters. The "Sound at Home" legislation provides a defense in eviction court for any renter who has faced a financial hardship caused by the pandemic that would have caused them to fall behind on rent. Speakers include:

Councilmember Tammy J. Morales, District 2
Anquida Adams, Chair of the Seattle Disability Commission & affected renter
Julissa Sanchez, Tenant Organizer at the Tenants Union of Washington
Tram Tran-Larsen, Community Engagement Manager at the Housing Justice Project
