Are you passionate about housing justice? Be:Seattle is looking to grow our board of directors! We are seeking passionate board members who are dedicated to Seattle renters and people who experience housing insecurity. We are opening our October board meeting to the public, so folks can see what the meetings are like, get to know the existing board members, and ask questions to see if we’d be a good fit.
Join the Tenants Union and Be:Seattle for our second meeting to learn about how we can build a statewide campaign for rent control in Washington State! This meeting will take place Wednesday, October 20 from 5:00 - 6:30pm over Zoom. Spanish interpretation will be available.
How is our current housing system failing students? How does this tie into the greater renter movement? In this workshop, we will hear from students about the housing crisis within student housing and talk about solutions with the student community. We will learn about how housing security can impact educational outcomes and what is needed to ensure students have stability in their housing. Speakers include representatives from HFS for Students and UAW Local 4121.
Building Tenant Power Workshops are designed to grow renter power, share relevant resources, and build solidarity with intersecting movements. Join us and lend your voice as we fight together against displacement and evictions!
We meet on the fourth Wednesday of the month at 6:00 p.m. Each workshop is designed to stand alone; however, they are intended to build skills, knowledge, and renter power over the course of the year. Every monthly workshop will be different.
