Seattle is known for its progressive policies, stunning natural environment, a thriving economy, and an overall high quality of life. However, the opportunities for prosperity are not shared equally among Seattle's residents and significant racial disparities exist in income, housing, education, and public health. Seattle's rapid growth risks intensifying these disparities. 

How can Seattle continue to thrive amidst ongoing urban challenges, prepare for sudden shocks and catastrophic events, and create opportunities for all residents to enjoy a prosperous, healthy, and high quality of life?

This is what the Seattle resilience work is all about.
