Assembly 02-08 007.JPGThe Alliance is driven by the belief that a wide range of faith, labor, education, immigrant and other civil sector institutions are essential to a vibrant democratic society—mending and reweaving the social fabric essential for strong families, healthy communities and a just world.

The Sound Alliance and its other Northwest affiliates are part of the larger Industrial Areas Foundation, the oldest and most widely recognized broad-based community organizing and leadership development network of its kind.

The Alliance is directed by a team of leaders from 30 dues-paying member institutions united to:

  1. Strengthen each member organization by fostering internal organizational cultures that are relational, action-oriented and reflective/learning-based.
  2. Serve as a vehicle for member organizations -- striving to represent the cultural, religious, racial, economic and geographic diversity of the region -- to act together in the public arena with sufficient power for justice and the common good.
