Rent Control 101

Wednesday, September 11, 2019 - 5:30 pm @ 5:30 PM – 7:00 AM
12th Avenue Arts, Pike/Pine Room
1620 12th Ave

The rent is too damn high! Seattle rents have risen by over 50% since 2010, leaving renters facing unaffordable rents, displacement, and homelessness. We’re now the 4th most expensive city in America. Though citywide market rate rents have stabilized somewhat, many tenants continue to face unpredictable and unaffordable rent increases and economic eviction. Rent control provides renters with stability in their housing but is currently prohibited by Washington State law.

Join the Capitol Hill Renter Initiative and Councilmember Sawant to learn more about rent control, how it fits into a housing agenda that prioritizes renters, and how to win rent control in Seattle and Washington State. Seattle and WA renters deserve predictable, stable, and equitable rents.

We will be meeting in the Pike/Pine room in the 12th Ave Arts building. Food and light refreshments will be provided. The venue is ADA-accessible, with step-free access to the second floor via an elevator. Please RSVP so we can adequately plan for the number of attendees.
