Please join us for our monthly meetup via video/call on Tuesday, June 9th. The call opens at 6pm for conversation, and the speaker will start at 6:30pm (details below).

During what is a very trying time for our nation and city, as Black Lives Matter protesters in the street demanding justice are met with a violent and militarized police force, we are excited to be joined by one of Seattle’s leading progressive voices, Shaun Scott. He is a political activist, labor organizer, historian, filmmaker, and writer. In 2019, he ran for the Seattle City Council in District 4 on a progressive platform of more public housing, a Seattle Green New Deal, and a freelancer’s bill of rights.

He earned The Urbanist endorsement and at a moment when the reactionary forces spent a pile of corporate money, he nearly won. If not for Alex Pedersen’s close victory in D4, Scott would have been the lone Black voice on Seattle City Council. He will be talking about the Black Lives Matter protests in Seattle, the violent response by the Durkan administration, and how/if we can fix our broken police department.

This monthly social event is free, all ages, and open to everyone. Call in if you want to meet other people who care about our city, network, or hear from an inspirational speaker. Below are detail for joining via video or phone. The line opens a 6pm for networking and discussion and the speaker starts at 6:30pm. We hope you can join us!
