Seattle is rapidly becoming a playground for the rich, while working families and people of color are being gentrified out of our neighborhoods. Seattle rents are now among the highest in the nation, and on average, one of our District 4 neighbors is evicted every other day!

As Amazon and big business make record profits, KOMO News’ right-wing, anti-homeless documentary “Seattle is Dying” simply proposes to double down on the same inhumane and ineffective tactics that got us here - the further criminalization of poverty and homelessness - while providing no solutions to the affordable housing crisis. We must reject these right wing attacks.

We need real solutions for affordable housing like rent control - a citywide cap on rent increases, limiting them to inflation and without corporate loopholes. We need a massive expansion of social housing for working people, paid for by taxing Amazon and big business.

To win, we can’t accept the corporate “politics as usual” in City Hall that got us here in the first place. We need to elect socialist and working class candidates this year who are accountable to our movement - not to the big developers and corporate lobbyists.

* Seattle Needs Rent Control - End Economic Evictions
* Tax Amazon - Build Affordable Housing
* Make Corporate Landlords Pay - Fund Homeless Services with a Tax on Vacant Units
