Why wait for permission to act when you already have the right to your city, your neighborhood, and your home?  

Long-term Seattle residents, community organizers, and activists share creative strategies to resist gentrification and claim ownership of their neighborhoods’ historic cultural identification. Join our most active and engaged communities and learn how you can help shape a Seattle that is grounded in racial justice.
