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.
August 2017 -- On August 12th, in Charlottesville, Virginia, white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and anti-Semites organized a hate-filled show of force against the African American community, communities of color, religious minorities, immigrants, and their allies. They killed one and injured many. The Sound Alliance unequivocally condemns these hate groups and their actions. In a 21st century democratic society, there is no place for such racist, anti-Semitic, anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant bigotry.
August 2017 -- The Federal Way Education Association is the newest Sound Alliance member institution. Welcome!
July 2017 -- At the final hour, Washington state legislators avoided a shutdown but settled short of what will be needed to sustain our schools and communities in the long run, and most likely makes the tax code more inequitable. More work is needed to make world-class schools and thriving communities possible.
June 2017 -- There were over 400 people at 5 different events at yesterday's statewide Day of Action to Prevent a State Government Shutdown. It was covered widely by the press, calling attention to the fact that if budget negotiations break down, government agencies, schools, parks, libraries and other important public services will close on July 1!
