Welcome to the Sound Alliance!
Welcome! We, the Sound Alliance, are a diverse group of resourceful, passionate people from across the Puget Sound area – united through our religious, education, labor and community organizations – who are seeking the best of ourselves and our communities.
The Sound Alliance was founded in 2008 to create opportunities for people to grow, connect and act powerfully and creatively to bring about practical solutions to the challenges facing our families and communities.
Story of a True Broad-Based Organizing Win: How health students ran a great campaign, then joined two issues together with labor leaders to create a win on both
April, 2015 -- The Health Equity Circle at the University of Washington (UW) and the Sound Alliance are celebrating a major win: On March 30, the Seattle City Council unanimously passed an ordinance supporting the creation of three new tent cities, providing much needed safe, temporary shelters for those experiencing homelessness. A similar ordinance failed a few years ago. In the final hour of this campaign, the health students joined across the broad-base with labor leaders in other Sound Alliance institutions to score a win on two issues - homelessness and fair trade - that are ultimately related.
