Tacoma Urban League

About

The Black Parents Alliance works within the community to discuss relevant topics, gain information, and make decisions to improve the education of our children. We advocate for policies that improve the intellectual, social, and emotional success of Black scholars and families; empower and give voice to the concerns and successes of Black families and scholars in Tacoma; and mobilize allies within the community to highlight the need for more robust systems of support for Black scholars.

While leaders and elected officials trumpet the importance of family, current policies and practices at the federal, state, district and school levels rarely provide sufficient support to teachers or to parents, nor is anyone held accountable for comprehensively and consistently engaging a diverse range of families. Further, although there are excellent parenting education programs currently in use across the United States, many of them do not possess the depth of cultural relevance that allows the curriculum to fully resonate with Black parents, in particular.

BPA believes in prioritizing conversations about race, culture, class and gender in the context of family engagement; not to say that these things must, or should, be at the forefront of all of our conversations, but rather to say that those of us who provide services and solutions should learn as much as we can about the context of race and culture bias in which our children and families are embedded. It is critical for us to make conscious decisions about engaging with family and community members in ways that demonstrate a deeper and more complete understanding, as part of our efforts to build positive relationships that ensure parent engagement is an ongoing series of supports that create a strong foundation of connection, particularly in the early years.

GOALS

  1. Meaningful engagement of parents of Black youth
  2. Build the capacity of parents and service providers for partnership
  3. Improving life outcomes for Black youth

About

The Black Parents Alliance works within the community to discuss relevant topics, gain information, and make decisions to improve the education of our children. We advocate for policies that improve the intellectual, social, and emotional success of Black scholars and families; empower and give voice to the concerns and successes of Black families and scholars in Tacoma; and mobilize allies within the community to highlight the need for more robust systems of support for Black scholars.

While leaders and elected officials trumpet the importance of family, current policies and practices at the federal, state, district and school levels rarely provide sufficient support to teachers or to parents, nor is anyone held accountable for comprehensively and consistently engaging a diverse range of families. Further, although there are excellent parenting education programs currently in use across the United States, many of them do not possess the depth of cultural relevance that allows the curriculum to fully resonate with Black parents, in particular.

BPA believes in prioritizing conversations about race, culture, class and gender in the context of family engagement; not to say that these things must, or should, be at the forefront of all of our conversations, but rather to say that those of us who provide services and solutions should learn as much as we can about the context of race and culture bias in which our children and families are embedded. It is critical for us to make conscious decisions about engaging with family and community members in ways that demonstrate a deeper and more complete understanding, as part of our efforts to build positive relationships that ensure parent engagement is an ongoing series of supports that create a strong foundation of connection, particularly in the early years.

GOALS

  1. Meaningful engagement of parents of Black youth
  2. Build the capacity of parents and service providers for partnership
  3. Improving life outcomes for Black youth

Summary:
Join us for an in-person celebration of 20 years of advocacy, research, and leadership for racial justice.

This will be our first face-to-face community event in over two years. We’ll have food, drinks, music, images, and stories from the past two decades, speakers and community leaders sharing their reflections, and plenty of time to catch up with each other and connect. This will also be our biggest fundraising event of the year.

Program:
Doors open at 5:30 pm for mingling with a wide selection of appetizers and drinks followed by a set of speakers at 7:00 pm where we will hear from environmental justice advocate Anjeanette Brown and Portland City Commissioner Carmen Rubio alongside our Executive Director Marcus Mundy and Board Chair Tony DeFalco. Guests will be welcome to continue mingling over drinks and hors d’oeuvres until 9:00 pm.

We so hope you will join us and help reflect on our first 20 years while building a strong foundation for the next 20 years of coming together for racial justice. No celebration would be complete without everyone who has come together to make our collective successes a reality.

If you cannot attend in-person, we plan on livestreaming the “program hour” with our featured speakers to our YouTube channel.

COVID-19 Note:
We will be continually assessing what protocols make sense for preventing the spread of COVID-19. The Redd East is a large space with good ventilation, space for outdoor mingling, and we will be opening up the space to the maximum extent possible to promote high air exchange. While masking requirements have been lifted in our area, we welcome attendees to use face coverings at the event, according to their needs and comfort level. We may ask our guests to wear a mask depending on case rates and community spread. We will be in touch leading up to the event with updates.

Seattle Center Festál
Seattle, WA

Seattle Center Festál presents Indigenous People Festival in partnership with Seattle Indian Health Board (SIHB). The festival provides a venue for Native people to celebrate their unique cultures through song, dance, performances, art, food, and the sharing of indigenous knowledge.

This event is free and open to the public.

HISTORY

Seattle Indian Health Board (SIHB) is a community health clinic that provides health and human services to its patients, while specializing in the care of Native people. The organization is recognized as a leader in the promotion of health improvement for urban American Indians and Alaska Natives, locally and nationally.

Today, SIHB operates two sites and is in the process of opening two more. The organization serves approximately 6,000 patients annually in King County, and more than 4,000 of those identify as American Indian and/or Alaska Native, and  employs more than 200 people. 

SIHB opened its doors to the community in 1970. In the 1960s, Native activists refused to let urban Indians go unseen and ignored any longer, which inspired the formation of a number of Native organizations, including SIHB. For the first time, urban Indians in Seattle had access to healthcare and services by organizations that were operated by Native people for Native people.

Seattle Indian Health Board (SIHB) is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.

DID YOU KNOW?

  • 7 out of 10 American Indians and Alaska Natives live in urban areas.
  • Urban Indians are tribal people currently living off federally-defined tribal lands in urban areas and are often an overlooked population in society, despite representing the majority of American Indians and Alaska Natives throughout the country

BPA believes in prioritizing conversations about race, culture, class and gender in the context of family engagement; not to say that these things must, or should, be at the forefront of all of our conversations, but rather to say that those of us who provide services and solutions should learn as much as we can about the context of race and culture bias in which our children and families are embedded. It is critical for us to make conscious decisions about engaging with family and community members in ways that demonstrate a deeper and more complete understanding, as part of our efforts to build positive relationships that ensure parent engagement is an ongoing series of supports that create a strong foundation of connection, particularly in the early years.

GOALS

  1. Meaningful engagement of parents of Black youth
  2. Build the capacity of parents and service providers for partnership
  3. Improving life outcomes for Black youth

About

The Black Parents Alliance works within the community to discuss relevant topics, gain information, and make decisions to improve the education of our children. We advocate for policies that improve the intellectual, social, and emotional success of Black scholars and families; empower and give voice to the concerns and successes of Black families and scholars in Tacoma; and mobilize allies within the community to highlight the need for more robust systems of support for Black scholars.

While leaders and elected officials trumpet the importance of family, current policies and practices at the federal, state, district and school levels rarely provide sufficient support to teachers or to parents, nor is anyone held accountable for comprehensively and consistently engaging a diverse range of families. Further, although there are excellent parenting education programs currently in use across the United States, many of them do not possess the depth of cultural relevance that allows the curriculum to fully resonate with Black parents, in particular.

More so than most cities, Seattle has shaped itself to suit its needs. Seattle has removed hills, filled tide flats, and created a completely new downtown shoreline. Join author David B. Williams on a 1.5 mile walking tour to explore the last vestiges of the former downtown bluffs, trace the lost island of Seattle, and examine how the subterranean fill still affects the modern landscape.

This walking tour starts at the intersection of Alaskan Way and Lenora Street along the waterfront and ends at Occidental Park. The tour is planned to occur the third Wednesday of each month running March through August. Recommended age: 4 years and older. Group size is limited, register on Eventbrite to reserve your spot for free. See our Visit Pier 62 page for tips on getting to the waterfront and frequently asked questions.

ABOUT DAVID WILLIAMS

David B. Williams is an author, naturalist, and tour guide whose new book, Homewaters: A Human and Natural History of Puget Sound is a deep exploration of the stories of this beautiful waterway. He is also the author of the award-winning book Too High and Too Steep: Reshaping Seattle’s Topography, as well as Seattle Walks: Discovering History and Nature in the City and Stories in Stone: Travels Through Urban Geology. Williams is a Curatorial Associate at the Burke Museum.

About

The Black Parents Alliance works within the community to discuss relevant topics, gain information, and make decisions to improve the education of our children. We advocate for policies that improve the intellectual, social, and emotional success of Black scholars and families; empower and give voice to the concerns and successes of Black families and scholars in Tacoma; and mobilize allies within the community to highlight the need for more robust systems of support for Black scholars.

While leaders and elected officials trumpet the importance of family, current policies and practices at the federal, state, district and school levels rarely provide sufficient support to teachers or to parents, nor is anyone held accountable for comprehensively and consistently engaging a diverse range of families. Further, although there are excellent parenting education programs currently in use across the United States, many of them do not possess the depth of cultural relevance that allows the curriculum to fully resonate with Black parents, in particular.

BPA believes in prioritizing conversations about race, culture, class and gender in the context of family engagement; not to say that these things must, or should, be at the forefront of all of our conversations, but rather to say that those of us who provide services and solutions should learn as much as we can about the context of race and culture bias in which our children and families are embedded. It is critical for us to make conscious decisions about engaging with family and community members in ways that demonstrate a deeper and more complete understanding, as part of our efforts to build positive relationships that ensure parent engagement is an ongoing series of supports that create a strong foundation of connection, particularly in the early years.

GOALS

  1. Meaningful engagement of parents of Black youth
  2. Build the capacity of parents and service providers for partnership
  3. Improving life outcomes for Black youth

About

The Black Parents Alliance works within the community to discuss relevant topics, gain information, and make decisions to improve the education of our children. We advocate for policies that improve the intellectual, social, and emotional success of Black scholars and families; empower and give voice to the concerns and successes of Black families and scholars in Tacoma; and mobilize allies within the community to highlight the need for more robust systems of support for Black scholars.

While leaders and elected officials trumpet the importance of family, current policies and practices at the federal, state, district and school levels rarely provide sufficient support to teachers or to parents, nor is anyone held accountable for comprehensively and consistently engaging a diverse range of families. Further, although there are excellent parenting education programs currently in use across the United States, many of them do not possess the depth of cultural relevance that allows the curriculum to fully resonate with Black parents, in particular.

BPA believes in prioritizing conversations about race, culture, class and gender in the context of family engagement; not to say that these things must, or should, be at the forefront of all of our conversations, but rather to say that those of us who provide services and solutions should learn as much as we can about the context of race and culture bias in which our children and families are embedded. It is critical for us to make conscious decisions about engaging with family and community members in ways that demonstrate a deeper and more complete understanding, as part of our efforts to build positive relationships that ensure parent engagement is an ongoing series of supports that create a strong foundation of connection, particularly in the early years.

GOALS

  1. Meaningful engagement of parents of Black youth
  2. Build the capacity of parents and service providers for partnership
  3. Improving life outcomes for Black youth

About

The Black Parents Alliance works within the community to discuss relevant topics, gain information, and make decisions to improve the education of our children. We advocate for policies that improve the intellectual, social, and emotional success of Black scholars and families; empower and give voice to the concerns and successes of Black families and scholars in Tacoma; and mobilize allies within the community to highlight the need for more robust systems of support for Black scholars.

While leaders and elected officials trumpet the importance of family, current policies and practices at the federal, state, district and school levels rarely provide sufficient support to teachers or to parents, nor is anyone held accountable for comprehensively and consistently engaging a diverse range of families. Further, although there are excellent parenting education programs currently in use across the United States, many of them do not possess the depth of cultural relevance that allows the curriculum to fully resonate with Black parents, in particular.

BPA believes in prioritizing conversations about race, culture, class and gender in the context of family engagement; not to say that these things must, or should, be at the forefront of all of our conversations, but rather to say that those of us who provide services and solutions should learn as much as we can about the context of race and culture bias in which our children and families are embedded. It is critical for us to make conscious decisions about engaging with family and community members in ways that demonstrate a deeper and more complete understanding, as part of our efforts to build positive relationships that ensure parent engagement is an ongoing series of supports that create a strong foundation of connection, particularly in the early years.

GOALS

  1. Meaningful engagement of parents of Black youth
  2. Build the capacity of parents and service providers for partnership
  3. Improving life outcomes for Black youth

About

The Black Parents Alliance works within the community to discuss relevant topics, gain information, and make decisions to improve the education of our children. We advocate for policies that improve the intellectual, social, and emotional success of Black scholars and families; empower and give voice to the concerns and successes of Black families and scholars in Tacoma; and mobilize allies within the community to highlight the need for more robust systems of support for Black scholars.

While leaders and elected officials trumpet the importance of family, current policies and practices at the federal, state, district and school levels rarely provide sufficient support to teachers or to parents, nor is anyone held accountable for comprehensively and consistently engaging a diverse range of families. Further, although there are excellent parenting education programs currently in use across the United States, many of them do not possess the depth of cultural relevance that allows the curriculum to fully resonate with Black parents, in particular.

BPA believes in prioritizing conversations about race, culture, class and gender in the context of family engagement; not to say that these things must, or should, be at the forefront of all of our conversations, but rather to say that those of us who provide services and solutions should learn as much as we can about the context of race and culture bias in which our children and families are embedded. It is critical for us to make conscious decisions about engaging with family and community members in ways that demonstrate a deeper and more complete understanding, as part of our efforts to build positive relationships that ensure parent engagement is an ongoing series of supports that create a strong foundation of connection, particularly in the early years.

GOALS

  1. Meaningful engagement of parents of Black youth
  2. Build the capacity of parents and service providers for partnership
  3. Improving life outcomes for Black youth

More so than most cities, Seattle has shaped itself to suit its needs. Seattle has removed hills, filled tide flats, and created a completely new downtown shoreline. Join author David B. Williams on a 1.5 mile walking tour to explore the last vestiges of the former downtown bluffs, trace the lost island of Seattle, and examine how the subterranean fill still affects the modern landscape.

This walking tour starts at the intersection of Alaskan Way and Lenora Street along the waterfront and ends at Occidental Park. The tour is planned to occur the third Wednesday of each month running March through August. Recommended age: 4 years and older. Group size is limited, register on Eventbrite to reserve your spot for free. See our Visit Pier 62 page for tips on getting to the waterfront and frequently asked questions.

ABOUT DAVID WILLIAMS

David B. Williams is an author, naturalist, and tour guide whose new book, Homewaters: A Human and Natural History of Puget Sound is a deep exploration of the stories of this beautiful waterway. He is also the author of the award-winning book Too High and Too Steep: Reshaping Seattle’s Topography, as well as Seattle Walks: Discovering History and Nature in the City and Stories in Stone: Travels Through Urban Geology. Williams is a Curatorial Associate at the Burke Museum.

About

The Black Parents Alliance works within the community to discuss relevant topics, gain information, and make decisions to improve the education of our children. We advocate for policies that improve the intellectual, social, and emotional success of Black scholars and families; empower and give voice to the concerns and successes of Black families and scholars in Tacoma; and mobilize allies within the community to highlight the need for more robust systems of support for Black scholars.

While leaders and elected officials trumpet the importance of family, current policies and practices at the federal, state, district and school levels rarely provide sufficient support to teachers or to parents, nor is anyone held accountable for comprehensively and consistently engaging a diverse range of families. Further, although there are excellent parenting education programs currently in use across the United States, many of them do not possess the depth of cultural relevance that allows the curriculum to fully resonate with Black parents, in particular.

BPA believes in prioritizing conversations about race, culture, class and gender in the context of family engagement; not to say that these things must, or should, be at the forefront of all of our conversations, but rather to say that those of us who provide services and solutions should learn as much as we can about the context of race and culture bias in which our children and families are embedded. It is critical for us to make conscious decisions about engaging with family and community members in ways that demonstrate a deeper and more complete understanding, as part of our efforts to build positive relationships that ensure parent engagement is an ongoing series of supports that create a strong foundation of connection, particularly in the early years.

GOALS

  1. Meaningful engagement of parents of Black youth
  2. Build the capacity of parents and service providers for partnership
  3. Improving life outcomes for Black youth

We advocate for policies that improve the intellectual, social, and emotional success of Black scholars and families; empower and give voice to the concerns and successes of Black families and scholars in Tacoma; and mobilize allies within the community to highlight the need for more robust systems of support for Black scholars.

While leaders and elected officials trumpet the importance of family, current policies and practices at the federal, state, district and school levels rarely provide sufficient support to teachers or to parents, nor is anyone held accountable for comprehensively and consistently engaging a diverse range of families. Further, although there are excellent parenting education programs currently in use across the United States, many of them do not possess the depth of cultural relevance that allows the curriculum to fully resonate with Black parents, in particular.

BPA believes in prioritizing conversations about race, culture, class and gender in the context of family engagement; not to say that these things must, or should, be at the forefront of all of our conversations, but rather to say that those of us who provide services and solutions should learn as much as we can about the context of race and culture bias in which our children and families are embedded. It is critical for us to make conscious decisions about engaging with family and community members in ways that demonstrate a deeper and more complete understanding, as part of our efforts to build positive relationships that ensure parent engagement is an ongoing series of supports that create a strong foundation of connection, particularly in the early years.

GOALS

  1. Meaningful engagement of parents of Black youth
  2. Build the capacity of parents and service providers for partnership
  3. Improving life outcomes for Black youth

More so than most cities, Seattle has shaped itself to suit its needs. Seattle has removed hills, filled tide flats, and created a completely new downtown shoreline. Join author David B. Williams on a 1.5 mile walking tour to explore the last vestiges of the former downtown bluffs, trace the lost island of Seattle, and examine how the subterranean fill still affects the modern landscape.

This walking tour starts at the intersection of Alaskan Way and Lenora Street along the waterfront and ends at Occidental Park. The tour is planned to occur the third Wednesday of each month running March through August. Recommended age: 4 years and older. Group size is limited, register on Eventbrite to reserve your spot for free. See our Visit Pier 62 page for tips on getting to the waterfront and frequently asked questions.

ABOUT DAVID WILLIAMS

David B. Williams is an author, naturalist, and tour guide whose new book, Homewaters: A Human and Natural History of Puget Sound is a deep exploration of the stories of this beautiful waterway. He is also the author of the award-winning book Too High and Too Steep: Reshaping Seattle’s Topography, as well as Seattle Walks: Discovering History and Nature in the City and Stories in Stone: Travels Through Urban Geology. Williams is a Curatorial Associate at the Burke Museum.

About

The Black Parents Alliance works within the community to discuss relevant topics, gain information, and make decisions to improve the education of our children. We advocate for policies that improve the intellectual, social, and emotional success of Black scholars and families; empower and give voice to the concerns and successes of Black families and scholars in Tacoma; and mobilize allies within the community to highlight the need for more robust systems of support for Black scholars.

While leaders and elected officials trumpet the importance of family, current policies and practices at the federal, state, district and school levels rarely provide sufficient support to teachers or to parents, nor is anyone held accountable for comprehensively and consistently engaging a diverse range of families. Further, although there are excellent parenting education programs currently in use across the United States, many of them do not possess the depth of cultural relevance that allows the curriculum to fully resonate with Black parents, in particular.

BPA believes in prioritizing conversations about race, culture, class and gender in the context of family engagement; not to say that these things must, or should, be at the forefront of all of our conversations, but rather to say that those of us who provide services and solutions should learn as much as we can about the context of race and culture bias in which our children and families are embedded. It is critical for us to make conscious decisions about engaging with family and community members in ways that demonstrate a deeper and more complete understanding, as part of our efforts to build positive relationships that ensure parent engagement is an ongoing series of supports that create a strong foundation of connection, particularly in the early years.

GOALS

  1. Meaningful engagement of parents of Black youth
  2. Build the capacity of parents and service providers for partnership
  3. Improving life outcomes for Black youth
