Who We Are & What We Do

The short answer: WWRHAH is you. (We say ” rah!”, but you do you.) We’re members of our southwest Seattle neighborhoods who are committed to making them places for everyone; places we can afford and want to stay.

Seattle is at a turning point — 100,000 people have moved here since 2009. We are a grassroots organization committed to representing all the diverse needs of our communities. We come from all over the world; we love this city and want it to work for all of us, at all income levels, with an eye toward a better future.

Our agenda and projects are up to you. Maybe you’re concerned about a park after dark. Maybe you have a problem with traffic on your street or know an unsafe pedestrian area where you walk. Or maybe you are wondering how you can fund a community garden in a place no one is looking. Whatever your issue, concern or idea, we can help you make connections and take action.

Please join us for our next meeting!

Building a Coalition of Neighbors

We get things done by working together. Really, that’s it. We live in Westwood, Roxhill and Arbor Heights — that’s our common bond — and we use our collective voice.

We hold our city leaders accountable, ask questions and demand solutions that work. As a member, you have an important role. We are open to everyone, so if you have a concern you’d like to take on with us, come to a meeting or reach out. We’re all volunteers, and we need your help.

Did you know…?

    • The City of Seattle has spent no capital improvement dollars in our area in 20 years, despite certain areas being designated urban villages.
    • Our neighborhoods are at high risk for displacement — we want to make sure we can ALL continue to be able to afford to live here.
    • Roxhill Bog, in Roxhill Park, is the headwaters of Longfellow Creek, but this important urban wetland habitat is currently barely holding water.
