One Everett Works to ensure resident access and inclusion in all aspects of civic life, building a healthy community that ensures that issues of economic and social injustices are addressed, focused on Housing Affordability, Good Jobs, Education, and Immigrant rights.
It is very difficult for municipalities with populations of 40-50,000 to get traction on issues because of their small size. Regional collaborations can energize projects, providing access to groups, leaders, and networking opportunities and events to drive campaigns to collective success. Integral to One Everett’s actions and campaigns is civic engagement because the real story here is creating voic Introducing traditionally disenfranchised groups to the political process is one step toward leveling the playing field. One Everett holds rallies, community dinners, and regular meetings, generating press and community buy-in. Monthly dinners and meetings are held in Everett to develop strategies around casino hearings, and future actions to build community.
