Seattle District 6 Action Group
A Community Group Led by You and Me
We are community members of district 6 who want to highlight the things that are not working for the community we live in and propose real, actionable, solutions to drive positive change.
Inspired by a desire to make our voice loud and clear, Seattle District 6 Action began in 2020 when a few Ballard and Fremont community members decided to organize and make an impact. Pretty quickly, this singular moment evolved into a full-fledged movement. Our Community Action Group challenges the status quo, holding our leaders accountable and fighting for solutions that will transform our neighborhoods.

We are compassionate about the population that has fallen on hard times and want to assist them with getting off the streets and on their feet.
Our community has been overrun by RVs, vans, and broken-down vehicles. These vehicles are parked by our homes, parks, and shopping centers, creating an impediment to the residents, business owners, and patrons. They have become a place where drug dealers work out of, where waste is illegally dumped and homeless are taken advantage of. We need to regulate and enforce parking in our community, including removing the vehicles people are living out of. This will help us to better identify and help those in need as living out of these vehicles is not a reasonable way to live. People living out of vehicles by choice find a place that has facilities to provide them clean water and waste disposal, we can't continue to turn a blind eye to those that need help and allowing this to deteriorate our community.
As residents of district 6, we deserve clean and safe streets to utilize as we access our homes, businesses, and parks/amenities. We shouldn't have to worry about our kids, our pets, or ourselves stepping in garbage or hazardous materials as we navigate our daily lives. Providing help to those who need it to get them off the streets and removing the vehicles creating waste will go a long way towards eliminating this issue. When a person in a bad situation is consistently being taken advantage of by a drug dealer or illegal RV landlords, they don't know they have a way out and we need to give them the nudge they need towards the help our city offers.
Seattle District 6 Action encourages everyone to play their part in our Community Action Group. The only way we succeed is when the change comes from within, and we want to empower you to take an active role. Learn more about the opportunities available to lend your support.
Be Part of Change
As a community, we need to come together to draw attention to our issues. We need to stop dancing around the inaction that has clearly not worked, but has instead led to a growing homeless population, broken-down vehicles, as well as drugs and waste on out streets. We need to offer the service our community generously offers as well as take a hard stance that we won't tolerate the disrespect that has been shown to our generosity.
Share this site with others in our community, share the resources with the people that need and will accept them, and don't stop taking raising your voice until we're heard!
