Crosscut says
Crosscut's fourth annual Courage Awards breakfast celebrates bold leaders who have refused to accept the status quo for Native peoples, fought to preserve independent public media, provided support for immigrants with green cards to become naturalized citizens, and spoken uncomfortable truths to power time and time again. What they all have in common? When faced with the choice between dialogue and rhetoric, they chose the former.

It takes courage to have uncomfortable conversations, but keynote speaker and critically acclaimed author Dr. Qasim Rashid will explore how civic leaders and Northwest residents can bring communities together to overcome racism, xenophobia, intolerance, and violence.

Crosscut reporter David Kroman and former Seattle Police Chief Norm Stamper will also share the stage to discuss our shared responsibility for police reform and the role of trust, community and communication in local reform efforts.

The Courage Awards provide a unique opportunity to connect with a network of Northwest public media supporters working to make our region stronger, smarter, and more connected to each other. Essential funds raised at the event directly support Crosscut’s in-depth journalism, elevating our public media as the public good that it is.
