Dear Neighbor,

For over a year, Morgan Community Association (MoCA) has supported the Appeal by the Seattle Coalition for Affordability, Livability, & Equity (SCALE) of the City’s FEIS for the MHA “Grand Bargain”. SCALE has so far raised over $200,000 to pay for legal expenses.

To cross the finish line, SCALE urgently needs to raise $20,000This will cover legal summary briefs and counter briefs for final arguments.

Please donate, and ask your friends to do the same! Donations received by October 15, 2018 will help the most.
