Learn more about the Resident Action Project!

The Washington Resident Action Project (RAP) is a statewide resident base of power. Launched in 2015, RAP — a project of Washington Housing Alliance Action Fund and the Center for Community Change – has been building a powerful resident lead organization. As RAP members we are experts on Washington’s housing crisis, having persevered through the struggle to find and keep roofs over our heads. And now, we’re becoming skilled advocates and organizers who are ready to use our power.

Rap members are residents of low income housing and people who have experienced homelessness and housing injustice, as well as service providers and non-profit housing providers If you are interested in learning more, sign up here!

Become a Legislative District Lead!

Making progressive change to make sure everyone has a safe, healthy and affordable home requires an army of advocates working throughout Washington state. With three seats in each of our 49 legislative districts, we have 147 different lawmakers to maintain relationships with. But we know that lawmakers listen first and foremost to their local constituents, and if we can mobilize in-district, they will listen.

LD Leads build and maintain an active local base of housing advocates in their state legislative district, alerting them to take advocacy action at strategic times. Working closely with the Housing Alliance, LD Leads can strengthen their legislative and advocacy skills while building community and developing stronger relationships with their lawmakers.  

We are seeking LD Leads in districts all over Washington. We are currently prioritizing people who are members of communities that are historically left out of policy and legislative conversations in Olympia, including people of color (particularly Black and Indigenous POC), immigrants, people with disabilities, LGBTQ+ folks, people with direct experience of homelessness, or people who are historically marginalized in other ways. This does not mean you will be automatically turned away if you do not fit these descriptors. The most important thing is that you have a working commitment to racial equity that is in alignment with the Housing Alliance's equity commitment.

If you are interested in becoming a Legislative District Lead, contact John Stovall, Membership Organizer: johns@wliha.org
