Working together, HDC advocates have ensured that affordable housing is a priority for cities in King County. We’ve helped secure funding for thousands of affordable homes, tenant protections for many of our most vulnerable neighbors, and helped cities implement policies to keep their communities healthy and inclusive.
Through continued advocacy we can ensure that everyone in King County has a safe, healthy, and affordable place to call home. To ensure you are equipped with all the skills and tools you need to be the best housing advocate you can be, sign up for our amazing professional development Advocacy Intensive opportunity.
