Tenant Protections in Tacoma
Wyatt Fisher, Housing Justice Project, Tacomaprobono, will guide participants through the new, proposed - and sometimes confusing - codes that govern rental housing in Tacoma.

Tacoma voters may no longer be asked to choose between two competing renters' rights measures in November. On August 30, a Pierce County judge ruled that the city of Tacoma must remove a ballot initiative for tenants' protections that have already been approved by the Council. Tacoma for All’s initiative seeks to amend the city’s current rental housing code.

Questions remain:
What does Tacoma's new Housing Code adopted July 11, 2023 mean for renters and landlords?
What parts of the existing code would change if Tacoma for All's Tenant Bill of Rights (Initiative 2023-01) is approved by voters?
This webinar is co-sponsored by Tacoma-Pierce County League of Women Voters, Tacomaprobono Community Lawyers and Tacoma-Pierce Coalition to End Homelessness.

For more information about current and proposed rental housing codes:

On July 11, 2023, the Tacoma City Council passed Amended Substitute Ordinance 28894, which updated the Rental Housing Code (TMC 1.95, RHC)
