Teresa Clark, Mobilization Specialist

Earlier this week I joined the staff of the Housing Alliance as Mobilization Specialist. As a Seattle-area native and long-time organizer, I am alarmed by the growing rates of homelessness, housing instability, and economic displacement in my region and statewide. I am energized by the opportunity to enter this work at such an urgent and exciting time.

I come to the Housing Alliance from the Washington Community Action Network, where I was most recently the Organizing Director, but have served in many capacities for the better part of 10 years. I'm excited to use my background in community organizing, coalition work, and leadership development to help advance the goals of the Housing Alliance. I especially hope to bring the intersectional perspective I have developed through working on many racial and economic justice issues to my work in housing. 

I have seen over and over as an organizer how strategically mobilizing a community of people can lead to big wins, and I'm honored to start the next chapter of my organizing career as part of the Housing Alliance team.

Stay tuned for more from me on the Housing Alliance's Board Advocacy Project, our Tookit to Combat the Stigma and Criminalization of Homelessness, plus important action alerts throughout the legislative session. I look forward to working together as a community of advocates this session and beyond!
