Dear Share The Cities Action Fund friends,

Seattle has failed the city, state and region when it comes to welcoming new neighbors, as well as not making enough room for housing to prevent displacement.

If you want extra credit, send your favorite comment as an email to the two citywide councilmembers and your district councilmember in Seattle. While Mayor Harrell is directing this process over the next two years, it is never too early to let your elected officials know that you want housing abundance. Let Mayor Harrell know, too! 

If you really want to "level up" with your advocacy, submit an opinion article to a local paper, like these folks did

In Solidarity,

Public Bathrooms In 2016, Councilmember Bagshaw and her aide, Alberta Bleck wrote: Public Restrooms Are An Urban Necessity. Since that time, our city has not planned to accommodate the needs of people living here, working here and visiting our city for fun. Our lack of public bathrooms is embarrassing and harmful to our communities. Any plan for new jobs and new housing must include a Capital Facilities element with clear goals and policies for ensuring citywide access to abundant and 24-7 accessible bathrooms. Relying on our public libraries and small businesses to make up for the lack of this critical infrastructure places too high of a burden on those institutions that are already doing so much.
