Anti-Racism Efforts in East King County – What will connect, sustain, and guide us into our next chapter?
“Not everything that is faced can be changed. But nothing can be changed until it is faced.” – James Baldwin
All community members are invited to join Eastside for All for an East King County virtual community summit to explore historical legacies and learn about local anti-racism efforts. What stories will connect, sustain, and guide us into our next chapter? What actions can we commit to taking within our community circles?
- Use history and stories to increase awareness and provide context for racial equity and the Black Lives Matter movement here in East King County
- Foster connections and share ways for participants to take action within their circles of influence.
- Encourage participants to think systemically and holistically about anti-racism work by bringing people together from different parts of the community.
Keynote Speaker: Delbert Richardson
This event is presented by the Eastside Race and Leadership Coalition and Eastside For All. Co-sponsored by the cities of Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, Issaquah, and Sammamish.
