Seattle City Council honors Al Sugiyama

Seattle - The Seattle City Council presented a Proclamation recognizing the lifetime work of Alan "Al" Sugiyama, who among other great efforts, co-founded the Asian Family Affair newspaper in 1972 and promoted Asian American history throughout the 70's.

Mr. Sugiyama is regionally and nationally respected for his integrity, courage, and tireless commitment to our youth and our community. His efforts helped to end misrepresentation of Asian Americans in the media.

"The City Council is proud to present this proclamation highlighting the hard and distinctive work of our friend, Al Sugiyama," stated Councilmember Bruce Harrell. "He has served more than 26,000 high-risk youth in King and Snohomish counties by finding innovative alternatives to transition kids into productive and fruitful lives."

In 1979, Mr. Sugiyama established the Center for Career Alternatives (CCA). For 30 years, Mr. Sugiyama's work as executive director for CCA helped to create and foster spaces where disadvantaged adults and youth in King and Snohomish counties can go for free education, employment and career training.

Seattle City Council meetings are cablecast live on Seattle Channel 21 and Webcast live on the City Council's website at http://www.seattle.gov/council/.
