Here’s your opportunity to learn about the Coalition’s Lift Every Voice Campaign and be part of celebrating the dreams and determination of the Rainier Beach Neighborhood. We will be hosting a series of workshops and information exchange sessions on the third Saturday of each month through July.
Each workshop will provide an overview of the campaign and practical ways for anyone to participate, including:
The Rainier Beach News Wire:
Local volunteer correspondents reporting headlines in near-real-time on events, activities, accomplishments, victories, across the neighborhood. Time commitment? How about 5 minutes a week? Sign up and begin reporting during the workshop!
The Faces of Rainier Beach:
Vividly portraying the rich diversity those of live, work, study, worship, and play in the Rainier Beach neighborhood through photographs; soon to begin adding stories of the neighborhood’s journey over the years.
Rapid Response Team:
Actively responding to media misrepresentations and public misperceptions of the neighborhood through letters to the editor, blog articles and comments, and compiling fact sheets on progress in economic development, education, the environment, public safety, transportation, and family life (including the arts and culture).
Living the Dream Map:
Mapping out acts of social justice and community building across the neighborhood, drawing upon the Rainier Beach News Wire, local blogs and articles, and “crowdsourced” reports. See the beginnings here.
On the Radar:
Help strengthen cross-organizational awareness of major events and activities to encourage coordination and mutual support. Here’s the “proof of concept” draft to be updated every workshop.
