Seattle Tech 4 Housing One Year Anniversary Happy Hour

  • The Sovereign 119 1st Avenue South Seattle, WA, 98104 United States (map)

Please join us Tuesday, November 28 for an informal happy hour to celebrate the one year anniversary of Seattle Tech 4 Housing.

We have a lot to celebrate at the end of our first year, including:

  • Legislative Wins: we lobbied alongside many other groups to pass Mandatory Housing Affordability in Downtown and adjacent neighborhoods.
  • Electoral Wins: we supported pro-housing candidate and now Councilmember-elect Teresa Mosqueda starting back in March, when we threw Seattle's first Democracy Voucher party.
  • Outreach Wins: we've brought out hundreds of Seattleites, many brand new to housing policy, to events featuring organizations like Capitol Hill Housing, Bellwether Housing, Facing Homelessness and The Urbanist.
  • Media Wins: in addition to mentions in The Seattle Times and GeekWire, we got our first national media coverage on NPR's Marketplace.
  • Philanthropic Wins: our members helped organize tech industry philanthropy for SKCCH's Project Cool and we're currently organizing a cohort of tech volunteers to work with housing and homeless service providers.

This has only been possible thanks to our dedicated organizers. Please come out on November 28 and say a big thank you to Brian, Bronwyn, Chris, Jonah, Laura, Thomas and Zach.
