The Build 1,000 Homes Coalition Keeps Growing!



The Build 1,000 Homes Coalition keeps growing! From the People’s Budget Town Hall to the public hearings on the budget, one thing is clear: When ordinary people in Seattle have the opportunity to weigh in on the budget, they point to the urgent need for affordable housing and human services.

In October, grassroots organizers rallied around the #BlockTheBunker coalition to stop the development of a $160 million new police precinct — what would have been the most expensive police precinct on the continent! Since then, there has been overwhelming support for our call to shift the $160 million once tied to the precinct to affordable housing.

The popularity of this demand for affordable housing is reflected in the list of sponsors, listed below. Learn more in the FAQsign on to the petition to Build 1,000 Homes, then contact councilmembers asking them to join the Build 1,000 Homes Campaign!

Let’s hold all Councilmembers accountable, and tell them they should vote YES on the Build 1,000 Homes budget amendment!
