KL Shannon

KL Shannon is a Black community organizer with Seattle Neighborhood Greenways. She grew up in Seattle’s Central District and started her organizing career with Jobs with Justice and Mothers for Police Accountability.
On a crisp afternoon last fall, Douglas Pullen, a 69-year-old Black man, was nearly hit by a white driver during his daily walk through his Seattle neighborhood. Having witnessed this, I (Kate), checked on Mr. Pullen after he was safely on the other side of the street.
