About Us

Accountable Northwest is an investigative and accountability organization serving as an independent watchdog on the issues that matter most to working families in the Pacific Northwest. We publish research and content on issues that impact everyday people — issues like education, public services, our workplaces, and our communities.

We examine the records of elected officials, corporations, and organizations, holding them accountable on vital issues. 

Since our launch in 2015, our work has exposed the moneyed special interests driving a divisive political agenda against working families in the Northwest. Our small but mighty team, sometimes needing to remain anonymous, works across the Pacific Northwest. We are supported by community and labor organizations, and individuals like you. We are not affiliated with, nor do we take any money from, candidates or political parties. If you value our work, please chip in what you can to support our organization.
