The housing shortage in Washington is driving prices upfueling economic displacement and homelessness in our communitiesIn 2022, we can face it with bold solutions for housing stability and abundant home choices across the state. 

Join us for a run-down on proposed policy solutions for the 2022 legislative session and to hear about ways to build momentum for a robust housing agenda.

Speakers: 

  • Representative Jessica Bateman 
  • Senator Mona Das 
  • Gregg Colburn, University of Washington, author of Homelessness is a Housing Problem 
  • Andrew “Ace” Houston, architect, activist and former Seattle mayoral candidate 

✔️ Together we can knock down the invisible walls that exclusionary zoning puts up around Washington cities, big and small, and begin to undo the legacy of discriminatory redlining and downzoning that still dictate who can afford to live in our job centers.

✔️ Together we can ensure every community across the state has enough homes of all shapes and sizes, for all our neighbors, by lifting rules that ban naturally-affordable home choices like apartments, duplexes, townhomes, and cottages.

✔️ Together we can protect renters, expand the promise of homeownership, and make progress to reduce homelessness making sure Washington communities allow abundant homes and affordable home choices near jobs, schools, and transit.

✔️ Together we can protect Washington’s farmland and open spaces, prevent sprawl, and cut our climate change pollution.
