The housing crisis is overwhelming our region. This action team seeks to figure out how to keep people housed, and for those who aren't housed, ensure there are services across the region that move people back into housing. With more and more Washingtonians facing eviction, homelessness, and the related risk of COVID, the mission of the Housing team is more urgent than ever.
Since the founding of the Sound Alliance, the well-being of immigrant communities and families has been a primary concern to our member institutions. Immigrant workers and families are part of all our institutions. Sound Alliance actions have especially focused on dismantling inequities experienced by immigrants of color, and those who are undocumented.
90 leaders from 17 different institutions witnessed public commitments supporting immigrants and children, heard personal stories of how these issues impacted people’s lives, saw Sound Alliance’s brand new video, and more at a packed Sound Alliance Action and Delegate Assembly on October 18.
The Sound Alliance Immigrant Rights Action Team only set up 40 chairs at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Federal Way on June 21, 2018.
Then 60 people piled into the room, filling it to capacity to hear Jay Stansell, J.D. present a workshop entitled “Reclaiming the Constitution. Knowing, Defending, and Using Your Rights in the Face of Injustice.”
