Robin Schwartz

Lead Staff Member at Duwamish Valley Affordable Housing Coalition

Robin Schwartz (She/Her/Hers) is a Seattle native who moved to South Park in 2007 to raise her family. Since that time, she has become steadily more involved in environmental and social justice issues and joined Duwamish River Community Coalition (DRCC)/ Technical Advisory Group (TAG) in early 2017. She is a member of many community groups in addition to her role at DRCC, including the South Park Neighborhood Association, the Concord International Elementary School PTA, Greening Concord, and the Duwamish Waterway Park Steering Committee.

Her work with DRCC and as a volunteer at Concord has made her painfully aware of the issues of gentrification and displacement in the Duwamish Valley. She is DRCC’s lead staff member on the Duwamish Valley Affordable Housing Coalition which is working hard to develop and preserve affordable housing with emphasis on accessibility by those community members most at risk of displacement, including people with low-income, people of color, and immigrants and refugees.
