Welcome to Spokane Alliance!
Spokane Alliance is a group of nonpartisan, proactive, everyday citizens dedicated to making Spokane a better place for all to live and thrive. You’ll find us working for change in churches and classrooms, in living rooms and union halls, in City Hall and in Olympia.
For more than 10 years, Spokane Alliance has worked to improve public transportation, increase job opportunities and green building requirements among other issues. We are a non-profit supported by the dues of our member organizations, individuals and foundations. We are affiliated with the Industrial Areas Foundation, a coalition of like-minded organizations in cities across the United States, the UK, Germany, Canada and Australia.
At Spokane Alliance, we believe that by working together we have the power to change our communities for the better. We do more than just sign petitions and protest. We take action.
