Featured Project

InterVAL

All Seattleites deserve the right to vote on issues that can affect their lives or candidates that represent their values.

Losing housing shouldn’t keep that from happening, but currently neighbors who lack an address lose easy access to voting. 

The InterVAL network exists to break down that barrier and help elevate the voices of our unhoused neighbors. Through InterVAL, Seattle service providers are simplifying the voting process for our homeless neighbors.

Seattleites facing homelessness can use an Interim Voting Access Location (InterVAL) to register to vote and pick up their ballots.

Mission

We strive to connect people with resources through innovative projects and are dedicated to training the next generation of community organizers.

Our projects focus on helping and empowering Seattle’s vulnerable communities. Each one focuses on a specific topic and tackles challenges in simple innovative ways. We believe in community organizing and we want to help others while sharing the foundation of organizing so people can go out and create their own movements.

We’ve created a collective of socially conscious businesses to help make the everyday lives of homeless neighbors better via The Pledge, are working to elevate the voices of homeless neighbors by establishing city-wide best practices for voter registration at organizations serving that community via InterVAL, and we’re creating a neighborhood-by-neighborhood movement of knowledgeable, empowered, and organized tenants through Tenants Rights Bootcamps.

This is what we do and we want you to be part of it.
