The Urbanist October Meetup with Sherae Lascelles, LD43 Candidate
October 20 @ 6:15 pm - 7:30 pm PDT
Please join us Tuesday, October 20th from 6:15 to 7:30pm for our monthly online meetup featuring Legislative District 43 candidate Sherae Lascelles. (Register for the Zoom link below.) The 43rd District covers much of our central city including Downtown, SLU, Capitol Hill, U District, Green Lake, Fremont, and more. While including some of our densest and most progressive parts of the city, the seat has been held for a generation by a moderate incumbent. All that could change with the election of Sherae.
Sherae has a long history of successfully building organizations and structures, culminating most recently in the founding of two crucial nonprofits: People of Color Sex Worker Outreach Program (PoC SWOP) and Green Light Project (GLP). PoC SWOP is an advocacy and community building organization for sex workers of color, and Green Light Project provides direct outreach harm reduction at the intersection of sex work and drug use.
Sherae is running on a platform that includes greater support for public housing and our neighbors forced to sleep outside, investments in green infrastructure, free transit, and state level police reform. Learn more at www.sheraeforstate.com.
This monthly social event is free, all ages, and open to everyone. Normally we meet second Tuesday, but this month we pushed the event back a week due to a scheduling conflict. Call in if you want to meet other people who care about our city, network, or hear from an inspirational speaker. The line opens a 6:15pm for networking and discussion and the speaker starts at 6:30pm. We hope you can join us! Register for the Zoom link.
