Washington Community Action Network
Washington CAN was born in the 1970s out of the Seattle/Tacoma Light Brigade, which fought against shutting off electricity for low-income families and against the taxpayer subsidization of nuclear power. During the 1980s, the Light Brigade became Washington Fair Share, joining a national network of organizations fighting for consumer justice and achieving statewide victories such as raising the minimum wage. From the early 1990s until 2006 we fought for justice under the name Washington Citizen Action and now we are Washington Community Action Network.

We did it! Governor Jay Inslee signed our Eviction Reform Bill into law Thursday! Now tenants will have the ability to present their case to a judge in eviction case, and instead of just getting three days notice, they will have 14. #HousingJustice #TenantPower #EvictionReform — with Gina Owens.
