South End Dismantling Racism Series Continues

The second installment in the “Dismantling Racism: a community forum for Southeast Seattle” series, sponsored by Rainier Valley Historical Society, SouthEast Effective Development, and South Seattle Emerald, takes place this Thursday, July 9th, from 7:00pm to 9:00pm in the auditorium at the Rainier Valley Cultural Center.

The event will begin with a short commemoration of the lives lost in the horrific act of terrorism at Mother Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in South Carolina. This will be followed by a presentation on the history of racial demographics in Rainier Valley, followed by a community discussion on what particular issues people want to see future events focus on. Event organizers have a lot of ideas, but want to take the pulse of the community. Everyone is welcome to attend, including people from outside of Southeast Seattle. The event is free to the public.

Please register to attend online. Registration is not required, but is helpful to the organizers.
