Global to Local facilitates SeaTac-Tukwila Community Coalition, a partnership of community-based organizations that work collectively to address SeaTac and Tukwila’s most pressing economic problems, social issues, and racial inequity. We focus on strengthening the long-term stability of low-wage workers, communities of color, and immigrants to ensure everyone has opportunities to prosper and lead healthy lives.
SeaTac-Tukwila Community Coalition members collaborate to:
- support workforce development, career pathways, and business incubation for immigrants and refugees;
- develop leadership workshops to empower community members to address local social, economic, and political issues;
- boost local civic engagement; and
- prevent and mitigate the impacts of displacement of residents and local businesses.
Global to Local supports the coalition by: convening community-based organizations to determine local priorities and strategies; managing contracts with partner organizations that implement projects to advance community priorities; and coordinating internal and external communications.
