About Us

The IAF Northwest is a regional network of 14 broad-based Alliances in Washington, Oregon, Montana, Canada, New Zealand and Australia.  The Alliances, in turn, are made up of a diverse mix of religious, education, health, labor and community organizations united to act effectively to bring about practical solutions to advance the common good.

By training and equipping “ordinary” people to act as public leaders through powerful local Alliances, the organizations have developed a long track record of issue victories around health care access, affordable housing/homelessness, public transit, sustainable jobs, immigrant services, education, prison transitions, addiction recovery and more.

Here is a video of Lead Organizer David Barrow from the Sydney Alliance explaining the relationships of the IAF NW.
