Civics: Community Forum: Transforming Pain, Fear and Anger into ActionDetails: The Delridge neighborhood of West Seattle experienced a hate crime in July that was clearly inspired by negative presidential political campaigning. In response, on September 24th over 200 neighbors gathered to get to know each other and share food, music and diversity. Now the election is finally over. But this election has widened our country’s already divisive political environment. “Politically incorrect speech” has been honored in certain political circles. We’ve heard political candidates claim that our election system is rigged and watched them stir-up and unleash anger and hate throughout our country. With Donald Trump’s surprise victory, our country now faces extensive uncertainty as Trump moves to address his campaign promises which pitted communities against each other, setting the table for continued anger and possible violence going forward. – Time: 1:00pm -4:00pm – Where: Westside Unitarian Universalist Congregation: (7141 California Ave SW Seattle, Washington 98136)- More Info: Here

As many of the artists that we contact and aim to assist are from one, if not multiple, marginalized groups of people, it is fitting that our 2016 fundraiser be geared towards fostering community between neighbors through the shared connection of art.Artists from our community will contribute their work on 10×10” canvases, with bidding starting at $50 during our silent auction.
