Community Conversations

Racially diverse group of people talking

Join our Community Engagement Coordinators for talk show style community conversations where you can share your thoughts and learn more about the diverse and dynamic communities of Seattle. 

If you are accustomed to participating in our bi-monthly Community Webinar, we have re-imagined this space as more of a talk-show format and will have new episodes the second Wednesday of each month.

Every episode will include time for YOUR VOICE to be heard!

Join us!
