The Resident Action Project is a statewide network in Washington led by people who have experienced housing injustice. Together, we are building power to change state policy through storytelling, organizing, and civic action.
Our aim is to build a statewide network of people who are directly impacted by housing and homelessness issues who are leading the charge for social change. These issues do not exist in a vacuum. We know that too many of the people with lived experience are people of color, people who identify as LGBTQ+, people with disabilities, and single parent families, and housing is one part of a larger system of oppression that we hope to address in our organizing work.
By becoming a Resident Action Project friend and member, you will gain organizing, advocacy, and policy skills. We are connected to the Washington Low Income Housing Alliance, where we have access to the resources we need to bring about justice to all Washington-ians. We welcome anyone with a lived experience and non-profit staff!
