Tell Mayor Durkan, extend the eviction moratorium!
Seattle’s eviction moratorium expires March 31. Renters in Washington state have been accruing $100 million in rental debt every month since the start of the pandemic.

Please take a minute to email Mayor Durkan urging immediate extension of the eviction moratorium until the end of 2021.
