Support the Tenants Union!
Washington State tenants have won important legal protections, but these rights don't go far enough. Members help build the movement to protect and expand tenants rights and make the promise of safe, healthy, affordable housing a reality.
Job Opening: Tenant Outreach and Education Coordinator
The Tacoma Tenants Organizing Committee and Tenants Union of WA seek a tenant who has been affected by the impacts of housing insecurity and displacement to work as the Coordinator for a tenant outreach and education project. The position involves training in state and local tenant law, conducting tenant rights workshops, and connecting with individual tenants and community groups throughout Tacoma.
The Tacoma Tenants Organizing Committee formed in April of 2018 in response to the mass displacement of residents at the Tiki apartments. We organized tenants across the City to win new tenant protections, and we received a grant to conduct tenant outreach and education in 2019 so that Tacoma residents are aware of their strengthened rights as tenants. Our partner and fiscal sponsor for this project is the Tenants Union of Washington, a statewide grassroots membership organization dedicated to safe, healthy, and affordable housing for everyone.
