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.

April 25, 2018 -- The Spokesman-Review -- To create a Spokane-based mobile clinic, WSU has partnered with the Spokane Alliance, a group of roughly 30 churches, nonprofits and other community organizations. The alliance will have community forums and gather feedback from stakeholders through the end of the summer. Some ideas that already have been proposed are bringing the clinic, along with interpreters, to neighborhoods with a large number of Russian and Slavic residents, providing care around Spokane’s homeless shelters and treating people in rural areas of the county, said Dave Kovac, secretary for the Spokane Firefighters Union, a member of the alliance.
October 2017 -- In an energetic Delegate Assembly on September 21, attendees voted on a variety of action paths for the Spokane Alliance to pursue in the coming year.
