The Senate Members of Color Caucus invites you to participate in the first-ever Washington State PoC Legislative Summit: A multicultural gathering of leaders serving communities of color statewide, convening to identify shared legislative priorities between separate communities of color across Washington.
The goal of the Summit is to achieve a unified POC community driven legislative agenda that all communities of color will collectively support. (This is not meant to pre-empt any individual community’s legislative priorities.)
This is a statewide summit with eight separate meeting “rooms” sited at college campuses around the state, joined together using modern video conferencing technology (i.e. a “Zoom” session). Each site will have a lead facilitator and staff to provide support and ensure a productive conference.
This event is free and open to the public to attend. Coffee, tea and water will be provided. All locations have parking and are ADA accessible. Childcare and language translation services will be available at locations with advance request. Advance registration is required by November 1. E-mail my legislative assistant Sam Cho to register, and receive updates and other communications.
When you register, please provide the following information:
- a) Your name
- b) Your organizational affiliation
- c) Which location above you’ll participate at
- d) Your organization’s legislative priorities (if already developed)
- e) Whether you’ll need childcare and/or translation services (if so, name your language request)
This event is open to all people, and while white allies may attend, it is a POC-centered space.
