Good Jobs & Public Benefits

Good Jobs have been a priority for the Spokane Alliance since our founding. Currently, the Jobs Team is focused on ensuring that all Public Works projects in the Spokane region create benefits for the whole community. We believe that the community is strengthened when more workers have health insurance and retirement benefits. 

HEART - Housing Equity Action Research Team

UPDATE: As of the Summer of 2021 HEART is currently reorganizing. At this time it is unknown when team meetings will resume. If you are interested in joining the future work of HEART, please contact us.

Health Care Action Team

The Mental Healthcare Research Action Team conducted a Listening Campaign in the Summer of 2018 to identify the biggest health care pressures that members of the Spokane Alliance experience. We held face-to-face meetings with over 150 of our members. The greatest need, with the most energy, behind it that surfaced was the need for mental health resources.

We Build Leaders

“I went to the training with some aspirations of building power in Spokane but feeling very uncertain and uncomfortable about pursuing them and came home with actionable goals and calm determination to do the work.”

Learn About Leadership Training

The Spokane Alliance is everyday people taking powerful action together for the common good.

We develop the diverse voices of our community, building relationships across religious, racial, class, and neighborhood lines.

Together we build the power to make the positive changes they want to see in our community, making our shared home a better place to live and thrive.
