Signature events have been a staple of RBAC since its origin as Rainier Beach Community Empowerment Coalition (2004). We come by it honestly, when we surveyed Rainier Beach residents back then, including youth. We learned they felt disconnected from their community and school. Our response to the school issue was to organize service providers and hold a Back2School. Its intention was to inspire young people about their education and provide neighborhood-based resources to their families. The Town Hall was also a response to residents feeling disconnected to this community, its intention was to bring critical issues impacting the neighborhood to the attention of residents and learn how they wanted to address them.
See you in the neighborhood.
