Join the Renters Rights Forum presented by the City of Seattle’s 5-Commissions

The Washington State eviction moratorium is due to expire on June 30, 2021. In April, the State Senate unsuccessfully attempted to block the house amendment to SB5160 mandating the moratorium’s end. As a result, thousands of households that are behind on rent are facing possible eviction on July 1.

It is crucial to know your rights as a renter and the resources available to assist you in maintaining your housing. The City of Seattle’s 5-Commissions (Immigrant and Refugee Commission, Human Rights Commission, Disability Commission, Women’s Commission, and LGBTQ+ Commission) will be hosting a Renters’ Rights Forum on June 8, 2021 from 5:30 – 7:00 pm as a teach-in for renters to understand their rights in preparation for the moratorium’s expiration.
