Town Square: Human Rights Day - The Black Experience
Town Square: Human Rights Day - The Black Experience
12/10/20201:29:32

For Human Rights Day, the Seattle Human Rights Commission spotlights Black Voices. In the midst of an ecological crisis, a global pandemic, a recession, and a racial justice uprising, society is going through an awakening. Yet, elected leaders continue to fail to ensure that all have equitable and equal access to human rights - clean water, healthy food, affordable housing, healthcare, due process, access to education, and employment opportunity.

Community members from King County Equity Now, Decriminalize Seattle, Converge Media, Black Trans Task Force, and Morning March Seattle navigate a discussion on the Black Experience in Seattle.

Speakers include:

Nikkita Oliver, King County Equity Now & Decriminalize Seattle

Omari Salisbury, Converge Media

Jaelynn Scott, Black Trans Task Force

Katie Neuner, Morning March Seattle

Shaun Glaze, King County Equity Now
