City of Tacoma Invites the Community to a Youth & Young Adult Focused Post MLK Celebration Discussion

A youth led, adult supported community conversation about recognizing young men of color as community assets is planned for Jan. 18 following the Martin Luther King Junior Day Celebration.

 

The “Flip the Script” event begins at 2 p.m. (doors open at 1:30 p.m.) at the University of Washington Tacoma’s William W. Philip Hall (1918 Pacific Ave.) for youth and young adults to reflect on how racism impacts their sense of self and wellbeing, discuss the systems that reinforce racist images and how to make change in the community.

 

The event is free to attend and space is limited to 300 attendees. To reserve space(s), pre-registration is available at 253flipthescript.eventbrite.com.

 

Refreshments will be provided. Free parking is available in the Cragle Parking Lot (21st and C St.) or at the Tacoma Dome Station (424 E. 25th St.). For information on public transportation, please visit soundtransit.org.

 

For questions about the event, please call the Office of Equity and Human Rights at (253) 591-5000.
