Have you donated yet to the appeal?

If you have, will you dig deeper and donate more?

The City has not adequately assessed the negative impacts of its planned upzones, nor studied reasonable alternatives to upzoning to create affordable housing. 

This is why Seattle Coalition for Affordability, Livability and Equity (
SCALE) has filed a legal appeal of the Environmental Impact Statement with the Hearing Examiner against the City.

28 community groups are joined together as SCALE to take legal action against the City to demand an honest and unbiased assessment of the impacts of upzoning on neighborhoods, tree canopy loss, displacement, schools and small businesses.

SCALE has been successful in funding our legal fees so far, with the generous support of Seattle citizens, Coalition members and a number of skilled volunteer lawyers among us. However, this is a very large and complex appeal.

In order to fund next legal steps, we need to redouble our fundraising efforts in April. Can you help now?

Thank you for caring about the future of our city as a livable place for all!
