Affordable Seattle

Rents have risen 57% in six years in Seattle. Homelessness is at record highs. Over the last decade, luxury apartments accounted for 92% of new construction. Working class households are being displaced and our neighborhoods are being destroyed. We can change course, but only if we get organized to challenge the entrenched power of profit-driven developers, real estate speculators, and big landlords. We demand that City Hall to take action to address the housing crisis.

  • Massively Expand Affordable Housing
    Build tens of thousands of quality city-owned homes, paid for by taxing big business.

  • We Need Rent Control!
    As a first step, require at least 25% of new private sector development to be affordable. Organize a movement for tenant collective bargaining rights to lower rents.

  • Make Landlords Pay for Economic Evictions
    Stop the displacement of low-income households! When renters are forced to move due to major rent hikes, landlords should be required to pay moving costs.
