What is Discrimination?

Discrimination means treating a person unfairly because of a protected class, such as:

  • Race
  • Color
  • National origin
  • Religion
  • Sex
  • Disability
  • Familial status
  • Marital status
  • Sexual orientation
  • Gender identity
  • Veteran/military status
  • Age
  • Ancestry
  • Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8)
  • Political ideology
  • Creed
  • Alternative source of income
  • Other subsidies

We are all members of a protected class. If you believe you have been treated differently, harassed, or retaliated against because of your protected class, contact the Renting in Seattle helpline at (206) 684-5700.
