2019 is another big year for local elections, and like we did in 2017, we’re partnering with advocacy organizations to get out the vote on housing and homelessness issues.

Housing Voter Forum, July 17, 2019: Instead of hosting candidate forums with 50+ City Council candidates, we flipped the approach and instead asked local experts to give a deeper perspective on the issues candidates are talking about. Watch the video of the panel here! 

We partnered with Resolution to End Homelessness and Tech 4 Housing for this lunchtime forum at Seattle University, attended by about 100 people. Note: The Forum was non-partisan and Seattle University and our partners do not endorse nor support any candidates.

Many thanks to our fantastic panelists:

To read bios of the panelists, see the event program.

Thanks also to Seattle-King County Coalition on Homelessness and Seattle’s Democracy Vouchers program for providing more opportunities for voter engagement.

Finally, we’re very grateful to Resolution to End Homelessness and Tech 4 Housing for inviting us to partner on the Forum. Thank you, Dana (who came up with the idea for this Forum), Ethan and everyone at these great advocacy organizations!
