#STOPASIANHATE

Eviction Moratorium Info Sheet
The moratorium has been extended through October 15.

 On February 29, 2020, Governor Inslee issued Proclamation 20-05, proclaiming a State of
Emergency for all counties throughout the state of Washington as a result of the coronavirus
disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak in the United States and confirmed person-to-person spread
of COVID-19 in Washington State.

A temporary moratorium on evictions and related actions throughout Washington State helps
reduce economic hardship and related life, health, and safety risks to those members of our
workforce who are impacted by layoffs and substantially reduced work hours or who are
otherwise unable to pay rent as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Specifically, a temporary moratorium on evictions and related actions will (1) reduce housing
instability, (2) enable residents to stay in their homes unless conducting essential activities or
going to work in essential business services, and (3) promote public health and safety by
reducing the progression of COVID-19 in Washington State.

To the community at large,


The leadership and membership of Pride ASIA stand in solidarity with our Asian and Asian-American siblings in fighting against violence and hatred. 


From the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, Japanese internment camps, to the "Chinese virus" and the murder of our community members in Atlanta, Georgia; the ongoing prejudice and discrimination that erupts into racism and violence must STOP.


It must end. NOW.


We cannot celebrate, empower nor nurture our communities if the ignorance, hatred and violence continue. 


Thanks to our friends at the Seattle Foundation, please refer to the list here and reach out to our community organizations in the Seattle/King County area and nationally for various resources and information.


If you are an LGBTQ/AAPI individual and would like support, please contact us directly at info@prideasia.org


In solidarity,
