The Race and Social Justice Initiative (RSJI) will present our annual Summit event once again in January 2023! This year's edition will feature three days of anti-racist learning, celebration, and restoration. We’ll explore how Seattle can recover from the pandemic while centering racial equity.

This free event will be open to both in-person and virtual attendees. Community members can stream select sessions online and join us in person on January 18.

We’ll be sharing more info about the 2023 RSJI Summit in coming months. Be on the lookout for more updates from RSJI and check this page for up-to-date information.
