Non-profit Anti-Racism Coalition: “Supporting Student Resistors”
Date: Thursday, August 10
Time: 3:00-5:00 pm
Location: Rainier Beach Public Library, 9125 Rainier Avenue South Seattle, WA
“As we look to the beginning of another school year, we wanted to bring the community together to brainstorm and reflect on how we can support student leaders. Student leaders confront racism in their institutions daily–in the classroom, in the administration, and in their peers. As students push back on racism, how are non-profits and the community supporting them? Join us on August 10th for a conversation about racism in education: Supporting Resilient Resistors.
Whether you are in education or supportive of student-resistors, we look forward to exploring the roles each of us play in student movements and resistance.”
Date: Tuesday, Aug. 8, 2017
Time: Noon–1 p.m.
Location: WSBA office, 1325 Fourth Ave., suite 600, Seattle, and via live webcast
“Legal practitioners and law enforcement will address immigration rights, enforcement of immigration laws, and how to be an ally.
The public and members of the Bar are invited to attend and participate in these conversations at the WSBA Conference Center. Decoding the Law is also available via live webcast and recorded for viewing on this page after each event.”

“As Columbia Legal Services celebrates fifty years of working for justice in Washington State, we invite you to join us in imagining a future in which all communities thrive.
Fifty years ago, Washington attorneys came together to form Seattle Legal Services, one of the first civil legal aid organizations in the state. Seattle Legal Services transformed into the statewide program Evergreen Legal Services, stepping forward to advocate for a more inclusive vision of justice in our state. Today, Columbia Legal Services and our allies in the justice and equity movement have continued our collective work representing individuals and entire communities who use the tools of the law to manifest justice.”
