THIS YEARS THEME
Every year we aim to create tangible change in our community! This year we are backing I-1000 which would redefine affirmative action in Washington, providing equal opportunities through recruitment, hiring, outreach, training, goal-setting and other methods designed to increase diversity.
This year the Seattle MLK organizing Coalition is ecstatic to partner with “Seattle Womxn Marching Forward” we are co-organizing a weekend of marching, rallying, workshopping, and healing, to help us all renew and plug in to the resistance. Take a look at their site here.
*Womxn with an “X” includes anyone who considers themselves a woman, and all non-binary / gender-non-conforming folks. Learn more here.
