Together We Rise: Seattle Human Rights Day Celebration
For 18 years Seattle Human Rights Commission has promoted Human Rights Day, a celebration of our city’s commitment to courageous leadership in the fight for racial and social justice. Every year, the event shines a spotlight on local organizations and individuals who are working to bring positive change to our community.
We’re proud to partner with the Seattle Human Rights Commission for this year’s program, themed Together We Rise—a nod to the triumphs and challenges of building community in these divisive times. We’ll hear from prominent speakers such as Jorge Baron, Executive Director of the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project; Ethel Branch, Attorney General of the Navajo Nation; and activist and former mayoral candidate Nikkita Oliver.
Join us as the Human Rights Commission presents the 2017 Human Rights Awards to outstanding local organizers and leaders. Past award recipients have included Nikkita Oliver, Rainier Beach Action Coalition, Garfield High School’s Black Student Union, Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, Casa Latina, and many more. Registration for the event is free, so visit our website to become a part of this inspiring Seattle tradition!
