The Black community has been present in the Central District for over 130 years. We were forced to live in the neighborhood due to redlining and in response, we have created a vibrant, dynamic and strong culture and we’ve made numerous contributions to Seattle, King County and the State of Washington. Now we are being pushed out daily due to predatory development, and Gentrification. We are saying #WEWANTIN . Black communities arent the only communities being pushed out of the quickly gentrifying Seattle. Native communites, Asian communities, Latino communities and many more are being pushed out and around. #WEWANTIN
Join us 2-6 on the corner of 23rd&Union to be entertained and informed by members of our community and the many displaced communities of color around Seattle.
