History Café: Remembering the WTO 20 Years Later

This event has passed.

Thousands of people took to Seattle’s streets to protest the World Trade Organization (WTO) conference in 1999. Memorialized as an isolated event, this simplified narrative erases significant contributions of activists of color by ignoring the years of international organizing that made it possible.

Hear from activists who participated in the WTO protests as they share their reflections on how this protest is remembered and its continuing impact on local activism today.

Moderated by Heather Day, panelists include Cindy Domingo, Jill Freidberg, and Matt Remle.

History Café: Remembering the WTO 20 Years Later is presented in partnership with the Community Alliance for Global Justice.

For disability accommodations, please contact two weeks prior to the event.
