Councilmember Kshama Sawant (District 3, Central Seattle), chair of the Council's Sustainability and Renters Rights Committee, joins Central District faith leaders, the Low Income Housing Institute, and community activists to unveil demands for social housing. They demand that the city commits to building 1,000 new affordable homes over three years for residents displaced due to gentrification and institutional racism, to be funded by a progressive tax on big business that raises at least $500 million per year.

Speakers include:

Councilmember Kshama Sawant, City of Seattle

Rev. Dr. Robert Jeffrey, New Hope Missionary Baptist Church

Rev. Lawrence Willis, Truevine of Holiness Baptist Church

Rev. Willie Seals, The Christ Spirit Church

Aisaya Corbray, Low Income Housing Institute
