Councilmember Tammy J. Morales (District 2, South Seattle and the CID), together with community representatives, introduces the scope of work for the first in a series of Tenants' Bill of Rights legislation. The legislation is intended to fix a weakness in the City of Seattle's Just Cause Eviction Ordinance that has, for the last forty years, allowed tenants to be forced from their homes without cause. This legislation aims to ensure that tenants are not removed from their homes without cause following the end of the eviction moratorium, or at any other time in the future.

Speakers include:

Councilmember Tammy J. Morales, City of Seattle

Dulce Gutierrez Vasquez, El Centro de la Raza

Tram Tran-Larsen, Housing Justice Project

Arianna Laureano, Seattle tenant
