Nonprofit Be:Seattle has partnered with the Legal Action Center to provide a series of tenant rights and education workshops Jan. 11 to March 22.

Tenant Rights Bootcamps launches 6:30-8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 11, at the Capitol Hill Top Pot, 609 Summit Ave. E., with additional bootcamps in the U District, Columbia City, Rainier Beach and Northgate area.

“With Tenant Rights Bootcamps, we will make it easy for someone to learn their rights, find a referral if needed, or learn about ways to help others,” said Be:Seattle executive director Devin Silvernail in a news release. “We are bringing resources to the people.”

Renters can learn about landlord/tenant law, community organizing and civic engagement. The goal of the bootcamps is to empower renters by teaching them what their rights are, and how to exercise them.

“It’s a tough time to be a renter in Seattle,” said Maureen Roast, senior staff attorney at the Legal Action Center, in a news release. “Knowing your rights is the first step to ensuring safe and stable housing for you and your family in this turbulent rental market.”
