To Washington Governor Jay Inslee:

COVID-19 (also known as coronavirus) has been classified as a global pandemic. Washington state is one of the focal points for the virus, with at least 570 cases statewide, including 37 deaths. State and federal officials are encouraging people who feel sick to stay home, but for workers who already struggle with making rent and mortgage payments, the choice to skip work for the sake of community health could leave them and their families unsheltered.

In order to protect the health and housing security of our community, we, the undersigned, call on Governor Inslee to act now so workers won't have to make that choice. Specifically, we call for a suspension of all rent and mortgage payments for 2 full months to allow people to do what they need to in order to take care of themselves, their loved ones, and the community.
