Housing For All 2018 Kickoff

January 31 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

We are at a crossroads in Seattle’s history. As population and housing costs surge, the inseparable crises of homelessness, housing insecurity, and displacement deepen.

The most marginalized communities are disproportionately impacted. For example, 29% of individuals experiencing homelessness in Seattle/King County last year identified as Black or African American, compared with 6% of the general population. The Housing For All Coalition formed in fall 2017 to urge the City to:

  • Step up the creation of deeply affordable housing
  • Expand and improve shelters and services
  • Don’t criminalize people trying to survive outside

Over 60 Seattle-based organizations have endorsed the platform for the Housing For All Coalition, which you can find on the website below.

Due to pressure from the Housing For All Coalition, the City Council has formed a Progressive Revenue Task Force to recommend funding sources, such as a tax on the largest businesses, to create new housing, shelter and services without further taxing working and poor people.

We can win big by the end of March – but only with your help! Join us on January 31st to learn more and get involved!
