Housing Equity and Action

Our affordable housing work is being led by West Central HEART, the Housing Equity Action Research Team. HEART is a group of activated leaders from the Spokane Alliance and West Central Neighborhood working together to expand housing options in West Central. 

Public Dollars, Public Investment, Public Benefit

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. 

Mental Health x Child Care Action Team

When the pandemic began the longer-term issues facing families and the childcare industry were laid bare. Many member organizations of the Spokane Alliance represent front-line workers who were continuing to work through the early shut downs. Their lack of access to affordable childcare created crises for families and in our public services.

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.
