What will it take to make Seattle inclusive and robust for all?

The International Living Future Institute presents the Equity Drafting Table, an interactive event located at the Bullitt Center on Capitol Hill.

Neighbors from across the city, including partners from Sustainable SeattleFeet FirstSeattle Architecture Foundation (SAF) and King County will gather over refreshments provided by Fremont Brewing to explore strategies for making Seattle a thriving place for everyone.

Through a self-guided tour, attendees will engage with thought-provoking questions on topics of equity, privilege and green building. As you move about the space, you'll share insights to these inquiries in writing, pictures and conversation. You'll also discover a few of our programs, including the Living Community Challenge, and how we're collaborating with the First Hill neighborhood to bring some of these ideas into action. 

Stay for a beverage or the entire event—all ages and expertise are welcome. More info here.

Register here. 

The Bullitt Center is ADA accessible. Baby changing stations are available in both male and female restrooms. The program content will be designed to be accessible for all ages and abilities.
