Diversity and inclusion have long come to the forefront of the national conversation, more so in this election cycle. While each of us bring with ourselves a set of diverse perspectives, a topic so relevant to these times still leaves room for common grounds. Contexts like workplace, workforce, education bring into limelight elements such as gender, race, disabilities or culture, but even something as basic as sexual orientation, socio-economic background or cognitive diversity can be vital to the lens. This year's CS forum is the perfect platform for you to come broaden the dimensions on this issue, all the while giving the community a crucial voice in the conversation.

Either stay within your comfort zone or step beyond it, be it routine or unusual, let perception intertwine with reality through a face-to-face discussion with empathetic members of the community. You may share your stories through any form of media (spoken, paintings, written, photography, dance, movement). We are also happy to accommodate people who would like to share their story but wish to remain anonymous.

Community Speaks began at the Aaina festival as a forum for South Asian people impacted by violence to break the isolation they have experienced by sharing their story. Aaina celebrates the artistic work of and about South Asian women. Aaina is produced by Tasveer, a non-profit arts organization.
Open to All.
It's a FREE event, part of Aaina Festival (April 15th-17th)
Where: Seattle Asian Art Museum, Alvord Board Room, 1600 Prospect St, Seattle on Capital Hill
Community Speaks scheduled time: April 17th, 1PM
