Leadership Announcement

Welcome Tyler Mac Innis as Director of the Coalition.

"My years of organizing and leading coalitions have taught me how to bring unlikely partners together, work to find consensus, and build political power. While rarely easy, working in coalition with others proves to be one of the best ways to advance progressive policies." 

- Tyler Mac Innis, Welcome Home Director

Tyler will be taking up his position on April 15. He brings a wealth of experience building diverse coalitions. 

Previously, Tyler worked at the Oregon Center for Public Policy where he organized a statewide coalition focused on reforming the state mortgage interest deduction and using the savings generated to address Oregon’s housing crisis. In this role, he also chaired a coalition dedicated to improving Oregon’s earned income credit and other tax credits that support low-income families. That coalition successfully increased the earned income credit for families with young children and improved childcare tax credits for working families.

Before moving out west, Tyler helped design and implement a communications strategy as an Emerson National Hunger Fellow for the National Family Farm Coalition. That work kept a diverse, national network of farmers and fishers informed of policy changes in the 2014 Farm Bill. It also helped preserve funding for a USDA program providing loans to farmers of color historically excluded from government lending programs. As an Emerson Fellow with the Mississippi Center for Justice, he organized a citywide anti-hunger coalition — Hunger-Free Jackson — that brought grassroots leaders together to address poverty collaboratively in Mississippi’s largest city.

The Welcome Home Coalition is looking forward to welcoming Tyler into his new role and working together to advance housing advocacy. Together, we can ensure our lowest income neighbors have a place to call home. 

The Welcome Home Coalition is fiscally sponsored by JOIN.
