Join the Cancel the Rent Coalition at Othello Park (4351 S. Othello St., Seattle) in demanding bold solutions: Housing for all! Rent control now! Tax the rich! There will be speakers, vendors, and music.
In this workshop, we will discuss how the struggles facing renters and people experiencing homelessness are interconnected in the fight for housing justice. Weak tenant protections pave the way to becoming unhoused, and many of the barriers that our unhoused neighbors face in finding permanent affordable housing are the same for renters who are facing housing insecurity. We will hear testimonials from advocates with lived experience, examine upcoming legislation, and brainstorm how to win stronger protections!
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.
