If you lived in Seattle long enough. Then you probably have heard about the stigma affecting this area. The people that live and work in this community know that stigma isn’t true. However, every time RBAC is present in the community, we know that we are improving the reputation of Rainier Beach. If you subscribe to our newsletter the chances are you have seen the flyer for the clean crew but flyers can only tell so much of a story.
