Current Campaign: In fall 2017, due to the work of the Housing For All Coalition, the Seattle City Council unanimously passed a resolution committing to funding deeply affordable housing, shelter, and services through progressive revenue such as a tax on Seattle's largest businesses. The Coalition is urging the City to pass strong legislation without delay.

we are at a crossroads in Seattle's history
As population and cost of living surge, and the supply of affordable housing dwindles, the Homelessness State of Emergency declared in 2015 continues to deepen. Our actions today will determine whether the Seattle of the future is a welcoming sanctuary that embraces diversity, or a homogenous city where only the most privileged can live. Thus far, the City’s response to the homelessness crisis has failed to adequately reckon with the affordable housing crisis that is at its root. We can do better.
