Please note: History Café: Resilience Past and Present in the Chinatown International District will take place online at 6:30 pm on May 20 as a free webinar.
Seattle’s historic Chinatown-International District (CID) was hit early and hard hit by the COVID-19 crisis, underscoring the history of redlining, racism, and speculative development that have made this diverse community vulnerable to displacement and anti-Asian hate. However, the CID also has a long legacy of resistance and resilience.
Hear from local CID Coalition/#HumbowsNotHotels activists Cynthia Brothers (also of Vanishing Seattle) and Marlon Dylan Herrera, who will share reflections on past and present organizing in the CID—including how community members are responding to the inequalities laid bare by COVID-19 through mutual aid and advocacy, to leverage this moment of crisis in support of lasting, transformative change for the neighborhood.
Participation is open to the first 500 registrants.
For live closed captioning, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org one week prior to the event.
Cost: Free with Registration
