Rainier Valley Historical Society says
“Dismantling Racism: a community forum for Southeast Seattle” is a monthly event co-sponsored by Rainier Valley Historical Society, SouthEast Seattle Effective Development (SEED), and South Seattle Emerald. Each installation in the series will include a panel discussion or presentation by an individual, group, or representative(s) of an organization. This will be followed by a group discussion, with participation among everyone in attendance encouraged.

This month's event will focus on issues of racism in terms of youth incarceration and its impact on communities of color. Presenters and panelists will include Dominic Davis of Youth 180, and representatives of Youth Undoing Institutional Racism (an initiative of The People's Northwest Institute).

Youth Undoing institutional Racism (YUIR) is a multi-racial, intergenerational community organizing group. YUIR is youth focused and committed to promoting meaningful and sustained youth engagement in civic society. YUIR is a project of American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) and The People's Institute Northwest (PINW).

Everyone is welcome to attend, including people from outside of Southeast Seattle. The event is free to the public.
