The Tenants Union can occasionally provide educational workshops for tenant groups seeking resources or information about their rights. Because the TU does so much work with a very small amount of time and resources, we have limited availability and will consider workshop opportunities on a case-by-case basis. We will consider educational workshops based on the following criteria:
The Tenants Union Education Program empowers tenants with the knowledge and skills needed to keep themselves and their families safely housed. Tenants in Washington have no governmental agency to rely on to enforce their rights. Landlord-tenant laws in Washington State are considered “self help” — it is up to individual tenants to get their rights enforced. The TU provides empowerment-based education and assistance to help tenants learn their rights and take action to resolve housing problems.
