Race, Justice, and Democracy: Where Do We Stand?


Tuesday, March 22, 2016 - 7:30pm

This event has expired.

Seattle has a reputation as a progressive city, but when it comes to matters of race and justice how progressive is it? How do we view the activist voices of Black Lives Matter? As the Seattle Police Department operates under a Justice Department Consent Decree, is there progress being made in building trust with communities of color? What kind of leadership do we need to break down the barriers of institutional racism?

The discussion will tackle these and other questions with a prominent panel of local speakers and the audience.

Confirmed panel members include:

  • Nikkita Oliver, lawyer, poet, and Seattle Black Lives Matter activist 
  • Steven Gonzalez, Washington State Supreme Court Justice
  • Marcus Green, Executive Director of the South Seattle Emerald

KCTS 9’s Enrique Cerna will moderate the conversation. 

WHEN: Tuesday, March 22, 2016

WHERE: Town Hall, Seattle, WA

TIME: 7:30 p.m. 

The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required
