There has been a number of additional tenant protections enacted here in Seattle over the past several years, with the goal of keeping renters housed and ensuring a higher standard of quality when it comes to rental units. Still, many renters don’t know all of the rights available to them or how to exercise those rights when a landlord isn’t complying with the law.

Nonprofit Be:Seattle has been hosting tenant rights bootcamps in neighborhoods across the city since 2017, and is partnering with District 3 Councilmember Kshama Sawant, Share The Cities, Queen Anne for Everyone and the Tenants Union of Washington to hold one in Queen Anne on Tuesday, Dec. 17. The bootcamp will run 6:30-8 p.m. in Room 1 of the Queen Anne Community Center, 1901 First Ave. W.

People are invited to come learn how to assert their rights as renters, ask questions and hear from guest speakers from the community. There will also be games and prizes.

Light food and refreshments will be provided, as well as a kid-friendly activity corner.

People can RSVP here. To learn more about tenant rights and upcoming bootcamps, visit
