About Us


The Washington Housing Alliance Action Fund educates voters, promotes strategic public policy, and supports candidates who share our vision that all Washington residents have the opportunity to live in safe, healthy, affordable homes, in thriving communities.

We do this through:

  • Advocating for public policy that advances our vision
  • Registering voters and engaging them as advocates 
  • Educating candidates and elected officials 
  • Endorsing and working to elect housing champions
  • Holding lawmakers accountable
  • Organizing with tenants of low-income housing
